Got my 50 Frenzy V2 today (need advise)
I purchased a Frenzy used (never flown) from RR. I received it today.
Of course I plan on going through it carefully as I get it flight ready.
While I do that, Just wondering what all I should be aware of with this helicopter?

I know there was a problem with the tailcase on earlier versions. How can I tell I have the tailcase that won't break?

Not really much you can do with the fan in terms of runout. It threads on like a Raptor one does. If you get one way out, junk it. I've put a couple gallons through a used one I bought and it's a nice helicopter, for any price.

You might want to check the fly bar if it is a fly barred machine. I put a longer 440mm fly bar from the vibe on. It calmed down the forward flight and made things a lot smoother.Carpe Diem!!!

I just started flying the Frenzy50 fbl version . No issues here, yet.
Overall its not a bad kit for the money. It flies great.

Check your failsafes. IF you don't, you'll be one upset pilot if anything decides to happen and your engine is running.

Trust me, it happened to me. During break in, I had my Frenzy sitting an idling. Then, all of asudden, the engine increases its throttle. I didn't do anything. The TX was set to Throttle Hold. Why did it do that?

Well, I had a LiPo Receiver Pack hooked up to my Align B6T, which falsely read the voltage on my LiPo. Hence, it read full battery even though it was at maybe 10% of capacity.

My failsafes weren't set up right. It turned out that my throttle failsafe was to default to 30% when power is cut/signal is lost.

Not fun.

EDIT:

To the guys talking about runout, are there any known replacement fans that I could strap on? I'm probably going to head into my LHS on Monday to check out the fans there, but in the mean time I don't want to destroy my fan by trying to take it off.

There's your problem right there.... Align electronics.
