I am almost ready to make the Freya purchase. I have like this helicopter for a while now .
I have a few questions. I have always though I would buy the freya and put a OS 70 on it. After thinking about it a while I decided why not an YS 91 . Found out I can buy a Freya promo kit inexpensively to have the adapters for the 91 . I think I should go with the 91 . ??

What are the basics upgrades I would need ??

Are 9252 futaba servos for cyclic and collective OK ?? Any other suggestions ?

What size Nicad battery i should get ? I am not ready to put out the money for a Duralite setup.

Anyone has any freyas with a Jody Greer's Painted canopies ?


Thank you,
Roberto Munoz.

You will definitely need
0404-716 - engine mount
0414-220 -T-type pitch lever set
0404-730 - Radius block
and a set of CX dampers if you want to rock it

Futaba's 9252 for cyclic will be just great! Not quite sure about collective...

Put in a high torque servo at collective. The JR 8311 or Futaba 9350 are 2 good choices for that function.

I think as slant911 - Futaba S9350 would be good at collective.

Cause its obvious take Freya 90 and put there YS90.
It you don't want to grab Duralites than take something with more than 1500mah
What gyro would you use?

Im using 2400mAh NiCd in my Freya/YS91.
Duralites would be a great choice.

The 91 will definitely make this helicopter rock and roll.

There's a guy here with a pumped C-spec 90 in his -- there ain't nothing that heli won't do. The Freya with a 90 is one of the most impressive helis I have ever seen.

I would say the radius block and engine mount are not necessities. I might spend that money on a metal auto hub.
The carbon extreme dampers are nice and cheaper in the long run. I wasn't able to wear them out while I had my freyas.

Get the YS or OS 90 size. Make sure you have the correct gearing for the motor you want to run.

A 9350 is a great collective servo. I would go about 1700 mah or the battery.

The 70 would be the cheapest way to go. I can't say about power. I have only had OS 60s and 90s in my freyas.

If you go with a 90, you probably want the metal auto hub. I like the metal radius block for piece of mind.

I think the 'best' collective choice is probably the 9350, but I've been using the 9252's without problems.

The 70 is way better in fuel economy and provides a little longer flight times (not much, but better). I have a 70-powered X-spec and it throughs the ship around pretty good. Definately better than the .61 I had previously, but not in the same class as the 90's. The 70 makes for a pretty smooth machine and still requires some collective management. This is on an X-spec, mind you, which is a lighter ship than the stock Freya. I've got a pumped 90 powered X-spec on the way, so I'm looking forward to trying that one out for comparison!

As mentioned in above posts, 1700Mah is what I use. I'm actually running two 1700mah packs and two switches for a redundant setup.

Good luck!

Get a 90 engine and gearing for it - the mesh will be better since its not adjustable on the Freya. Too much slack with a 70 - the main gear will soon wear out, even the Delrin one.

Garry-Boy: Are you sure about that part number for the engine mount? I looked it up and it's for a fuel tank stopper for a Gasser Eagle

I have been looking for a one-piece engine mount and was hoping I had found one!

Alpine: If you are going to use a 90, you almost definately will want the metal auto hub (part #414-229) and collective "T" lever (push pull, part #0414-220).

If it is a standard Freya, it might be good idea to consider the metal washout hub and the 3rd bearing block. I don't think they are "needed", but would be improvements.

As for the battery, I run a 3000MaH NiHM 6 volt with a voltage regulator. I have all digital servos and want the extra insurance of the bigger pack. I have an 8311 on collective, 8231's on cyclics, and a GY-401/9250 on the tail. I also run a governor, so there's lots of drain. I can get about 5 flights on a charge with this setup.

The mount is definitely not a necessity - a nicety at most. The radius block however I would definitely recommend! The stock plast one has a tendency to slip on the main shaft. The metal one has 4 set screws that you can crank down pretty well to keep it in place.

The collective T-lever is another good thing to pick up and the Delrin gear. Personally I like the Xspec's fan a lot - so much much easier than the stock one!

Freya's are awesome! I've had both the standard and an Xspec with 90's in em both and the Xspec does have an advantage, but not by too much!
