The more I fly this machine, the better I like it. Saturday I finally turned the governor on (first flight w/a gov) and what a difference! With the curves, I get 1490 head speed, with the governor (low setting) I have 1650. Best flight yet! I don't have much flight time on the Freya yet, but each time is better than the last.

Im not real sure of what RPM the OS70 has good power at but I run a YS91 on my Freyas with 8.45 gear ratio and it really likes 1900-1950 head speed. I usually run about 1750 normal,1850 Idle 1,1950 Idle 2.I really just try to find the happy spot for each machine and the way I want it to respond.

For my skill level, I think the 1650 is pretty good. When my mentor/instructor tached the head (normal mode, gv-1 off), he said the 1490 was a bit on the slow side, but it would make me work harder and would be good training. That's how I've been flying it and it does make me work the sticks. Saturday, the wind was "puffy" so I decided to turn the Gv-1 on to see how it would react to the higher HS. It was much easier to fly and the controls were much crisper. It has been interesting taking things slow and learning what/how changes made affect the flying/handling.

Currently, I have the gv-1 controlled by switch "c"; up is off, middle is 1650 and down is 1850. I've done circuits with the smaller Sceadu, but have been taking it slow with the Freya, trying to get the feel for it. Saturday, I did my first forward flight with it. As I said, the more I fly it, the more I like it!

I still have a lot to learn and I think the Freya will be the bird to teach me.

Freya
I enjoyed my Freya Xspec with an OS 70 with the 9.3 gear ratio. Running 680 mm blades and 1650 headspeed is nice and gentle. 1750 for sport flying and 1850 for 3D. The OS 70 is an absolute Gem in my book. Smooth, easy to start, good power, and sips fuel. The Freya is a wonderful machine that requires super low maintainence.

Autos are improved markedly when you upgrade to all delrin gears.

After I "doinked" my Fury I went home to find a little voodoo doll Fury sitting between my Freyas.

If I run my Freya at 1450 you almost can't hear it 15 yards out and it's fun in SFF. I generally run it around 1650 and 1850 in idle up.

Guess that means you HAVE to bring at least one of the Freyas every time you go fly!
Has the "post mortum" started yet on the Fury???

Yep, I think the Freyas are demanding some attention.

I have not done anything with the Fury. I've got EVO50 parts all over to the left and Fury #2 on the bench so Fury #1 is on the floor in it's own puddle with the Freyas, Vigor and Rappy smiling from above.
