Yup! That's the general consensus with this heli. I just don't understand why some guys will not try it! Its just one of those cases where you get what you pay for just doesn't quite cover this one! I flew mine today as well. I have one kit still in the box from last year, just in case I crash so bad a re kit is necessary. I had that happen once with my first kit, where it went in nose first, but even then, I could have gotten away with just repairing it. But I had a kit still in the box so I used that one. How many heli's on the market are THAT cost effective?

if you space the blade grip arms about 5mm further away from the blade grip itself, its even more solid

you want to put a spacer between the blade grip and the blade grip arm. the stock frenzy fbl head doesnt have enough resolution from swash to blade grips.

youll need to get longer 3mm screws, but the best thing it to get a piece of .25" x .25" aluminum stock, cut it to about 5/8" long and drill 2 holes for the screws to go through. remove the blade grip arms and place the spacer in there. this will help with the resolution.

is this only for the FBL head? I have not gone that route yet.

If you happen to have a picture, that would be awesome.

That will improve the resolution, but decrease both the collective and cyclic pitch range.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

in theory yes, but on a fbl setup, you can still achieve +/- 12 degrees of collective with no problem.

Boy I wish i could say that! For me its more like 4 or 5 times a month! Hopefully this year will be better! Funny how the winter really plays with our brain, and we are out of sync with the heli!

As far as tail rod goes, straighten you old one the best you can and slip it into a carbon fiber rod from your LHS, heat shrink both ends and you are good to go! It will fit on the larger holes of the tail rod supports. works rather well.

Other wise the rod from the trex 600 is an inch short, if you used the long UK links you might be able to make it work with about 3/8" threaded on each one, but the carbon fiber fix is what I'm using and it works great, not to have to worry about that anymore unless you actually break the rod which is unlikely. I think I'm using a rod that's .250. and it slides really smooth in those larger holes.

Well, I just got into the Frenzy world. I like the look and design of the machine. But not more than its price....

I got a FBL Frenzy. Looking forward to have it flying in about two months. Will be using a Futaba CGY750 for stabi.

I hope Amain keep supporting this model for long.

The Frenzy I got is this one:

I expect to have a great time with the machine. I'm a 3D flyer who loves 3D autos (all kinds). I've visited mother earth often so the Frenzy can help me on that, LOL.

Take care guys, and lets make the Frenzy Section Great!!
