I have the Frenzee and it is by far my favorite plane to fly. Flies like its on rails and will slow down very nicely when you want it too. This kit is $35.00 and well worth every penny.

I recently picked up the 16" Goliath and am in the process of getting that flying. I had about 10 minutes the other day when it wasn't way too windy or raining to test it out but ran out of time. Still need to get the cg adjusted better and trim it out. It looks VERY promising so far and I'm sure it is going to be an awesome little wing. I am asking my wife for the Sceam-Blur for Christmas so I will have their whole fleet.

I will try and get a pic of my Frenzee up later tonight. I'll have to post a pic of my Goliath later, its not finished quite yet, need to add some finishing touches to it still.

My second plane ever was a Frenzee. It was the old pink foam cores. That poor thing is beat to heck but still flies better than most new ones. Fast, agile and slows down to a crawl. Since then I've had way too many planes to mention including a very light brushless Goliath. I kept trying to fly it with TP 730 2S packs and was not all that impressed. It was fast but not all that much fun to fly. Then I got some 2S and 3S 350 packs and WOW the lighter weight made all the difference in the world! I was flying the heck out of that one until I hit the top bar on a chain link fence at 65+ MPH It is hurt but will fly again once I get a few other projects off of the bench.


I just bought a new Frenzee kit with the CDR and the Scramblur w/
CDR. I'll post pictures of them when I get them built. Hopefully soon!

I do love my Frenzee and Goliath.
Little but great flyers.
I am also satisfied with the excellent service of Sylvan Aircraft.

BTW, how do you launch your wings?
I grab left wing leading edge with my left hand, power on and throw them
by frisbee style. Easy and stable launch is possible at a bit windy conditions.

#We Japanese use mode 1 tx: throttle and aileron control on right stick.

Please check flight movie on my Frenzee page.

Osamu-san: I lived in Yokohama near Yamashita-cho for 3 years. I was a US Navy dentist in charge of a small dental clinic in Negishi-dai. BTW, my wife is a Japanese native from Nagasaki.

I enjoyed your page on the Frenzee. Your tip with the carbon fiber reinforcement for the control rods is great. I intend to use that mod since I too am concerned about flexing of those thin wires.

I noticed that you also own a Mini SpeedWing EX and wonder how you like it? I'm seriously considering getting one of those also.

I wanted to watch your movie, but couldn't because the server is too slow. I recommend that you move it to "You tube."

I think it's great that Japanese modelers like yourself are flying the Frenzee! Thanks for posting on RC Groups and I hope you continue with more posts in the future!

Please save the file on your HD and play.
I put the movie to YouTube.

The movie works fine on "YouTube." Thanks for posting it there. I flew mine again yesterday and mine flys like yours except for 2 things. I'm using a JR R610UL receiver and it glitches - very annoying. Unfortunately, since I buried it in the foam and the antenna is taped over, I probably won't change it out and just put up with it. Needless to say I won't be buying anymore of them in the future. I've found the JR 700's to be fine, but they are a little large. I'm trying out one of the new CC Berg receivers on my next one.

Also, in turns, mine sort of "wags." I think the "waging" is due to the thin pushrods bending so I'm going to use your carbon fiber rod mod to make them more rigid. I'll take a look at your Japanese page later when my wife is home.

I got rid of the glitches and the wagging. I used the mod from cvlex on the push rods. That is, I added a carbon fiber rod to each pushrod. Now they are very stiff and the control is solid. I got rid of the glitching by adding 2 more capacitors to the motor. I also moved the battery pack back about 1/8". It flew great today except I almost lost it.

I was flying by myself at our club field and was flying over some tall grass when I lost it - dumb thumbs. The grass is not mowed there and pretty tall. I tried to make a mental note of where it made it's unscheduled landing and I walked out there thinking I would easily find it. Wrong! I looked for that thing for almost 3 hours in the tall grass and couldn't find it. It was getting dark and I was almost ready to give up, but since it was very quiet out there I grabbed the transmitter and went back out there. The servos I have on it are Cirrus and they are real noisy. I started flipping the transmitter on and off and listening. I thought I heard something in the distance but wasn't sure. I keep walking toward the sound and after about 5 minutes I found it. It wasn't at all where I thought it would be. It was undamaged lying upside down in the grass. I was exhausted from walking for almost 3 hours in high grass trying to find it. I think I'm going to put a small buzzer on it before I fly it again! I don't want to ever do that again!
