I have finally got my Frenzy rebuild after last crash. As you can see it is a very long time ago the last crash, long story short i had to wait for parts and i did have some motivation issues, but now i am back in the game, just need to make some governor setup and some weather over -10 degrees.

The reason for the crash, i found the my old tail blades was at 8 grams and the tail blade holder was not made for 8 grams tail blades, apparently. Not the best design my Frenzy TT, but if you don’t use 8 grams tailblades you will be just fine.

And some nice new pictures

Final review of the Frenzy 90 TT

No Gravatar

Now i got the time and the flights to complete the review of the Frenzy 90 TT, the new and improved Frenzy.

To summarize the conclusion :
A good helicopter for the price, i don’t really understand the higher price on the TT version, but it is still a good priced model.

Yes that is it, it has some small issues, some of them you can fix with a hex and some you have to work a little harder to fix, but for the average pilot this helicopter is a great beginner and advanced helicopter. And please remember that you have to do small fixes with a high priced helicopter on the marked to.

But what i really like on the Frenzy is you can get easy access to the engine and clutch AND I LIKE THE PRICE.

This is a model most of you pilots would be very happy with, i am sure.

Just smack it around.

Now i finally got the review of the new Frenzy don, please have a look for an in-depth review of this great model. http://rcheli.dk/frenzy-90/

As you properly can remember from some of my previous post, i have had some problems with my engine running warm, but you can solved that problem, just by changing all the fuel tubs on the Frenzy, specially the tubs in the thanks was very thin and seemed to be a big problem for my engine. But the model is flying great now.

My starter engine finally died on my and i have to get a new one, i have concidering getting the Align but word is that the Align super starter (ASS) is not perfect for a 90 size engine and that is why i am getting a Dynatron 120 starter

JS Frenzy 90 TZ-V2, first test flight

You know the guy at your flying field there always seems to have problems and luck is not in his dictionary. I AM THAT GUY, with no luck :)

But i have learned to live with it :)

On the positive update, i got the Frenzy airborne and yes it flies nicely, here you can see below i made a small takeoff in my garden just to check the engine. The video is to boring this is just a screenshot of the video

That was a good start some days after i was heading to the flying field, well this day i would like to forget about this day, i flooded the engine resulting in the clutch coming loose, resulting in binding the clutch and no flight that day, as you can see from the pictures below, first day at the field bummer. But the Frenzy was easy to disassemble compared to the Freya.

Some days after i headed to the field again, a very windy day but hay no problem it a helicopter right. You can’t setup a gyro in hard wind but i could still get it up in the air, and i did it went well, i did some engine tuning and some gyro tuning, had some small tail wag but with some adjustment i was gone. While i am on the subject gyro setup let me show you a good link this is a QA from Spartan, very good information http://www.spartan-rc.com/support.php

But then the problem started, suddenly in a low upright flight the helicopter just started spinning very fast it is my luck that i am practicing piro maneuvers with the throttle hold i manage to land the helicopter without a scratch.

With some post flight inspection i discovered that the tail was stating to some off or the axis on the tail was. A lesson to all of you when you get a preassembled model check every screw on the model, i apparently missed two at the tail. As you can see from the pictures the two screws holding the tail axis was not placed correctly resulting in the tail sliding to one side and the helicopter doing aggressive piros.
