Eh
To be honest, parts for this heli are quite hard to get ahold of.

It's either I spend a little and wait 2-4 weeks for the parts to come from HK, or pay 3x the price and order the parts from Amain. (And they're the only US distributor).

I still do!!! I just stock up on parts that will most likely get broke in a crash. Even if Amain is the only source, parts price is still better than some heli's. I also really like flying it.
HK just got a boat load of parts in stock, nows your chance!

I just ordered from HK so it's too late for those parts and I don't really feel like ordering again for a couple of months :3

What parts do you keep around?

Like Sonny last year I think I spent about $300 on just a bunch of extra parts. I have enought I could probably just about build the heli again twice over and I even bought another brand new airframe last year pretty cheap. I remember last year seems that Amain was out of stock of just about everything. However I have had no need to look for parts yet so not sure how there stock is this year. I was just curious is anyone is even flying them anymore. They seemed to be one of the hot ticket a couple of years ago.Carpe Diem!!!

The main grip arms, booms, belt drive gears, landing gear although you can make just about anything work if you have to. Main gear, although I have yet to need one, tail parts. That arm that controls the tail linkage, I can't think of the part names right off, I guess that shows I haven't had to order the stuff in awhile!Bald Pilots usually wear hats!

I have the all silver metal head Frenzy. I guess that makes it a version 1? I just hit the ground flat with it the other day and need to replace the main frameset. I'm taking the opportunity to upgrade to the metal tail and tail pulley too. I really like the Frenzy 50!

Parts are easy for the 50, not so much for the 90. We're in trouble when AMain drops the 50 as they already have the 90. There will still be Hobby King but I hate dealing with them.

I'm almost done building my first Frenzy 50. Bought it used and converted to FBL. Also went with the 140 option. Hopefully a couple of weeks and I'll be flying.
