    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Hey grandpa,
    My wing is straight as a board. The horizontal stab is perfectly parallel with the wing, but the fin is leaning a tad to the left. That should not affect anything, though. I am overly careful when I build an ARF. But sometimes you miss this or that. I know how she flies. That's why I bought me one. She is a great little acrobat. Horizon is great to deal with, when it comes to problem solving. They really stand behind their products[sm=thumbs_up.gif]

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Hey Joe been awhile. Still flying mine have alot of air time with it now. Having some motor issues at this time. It deadsticked on me a few days ago. After i had adjusted trying to lean it out some. Also did you have to raise the fuel tank on yours? My tank sits higher than my needle valve and tends to flood the motor after fueling. I have been putting about 3/4 full in the tank and that seems to help but man it has started to give me some concerns. Mine is fairly rich and i don't know alot about the 4 strokes. Has a beautiful smoke trail lol. It seems to run fine but the flooding after fueling is getting to me. I run the fuel line to the top of the cowl to a fuel dot from there to carb. Thought that would take care of the flooding but it still seems to flood some.

    Hey kid,
    You are running a S 125, are you? I noticed the same problems on mine. She is really hard to get to keep idleing on the ground. Already thought I got me a crappy Saito, or something.

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Hi Kid its been awhile hope you'll had A good Christmas and A happy New Year!I have not did anything too my tank and I too have A trail of smoke but I like that in A Saito.MIne idle good and run good and I havn't notis any flooding.I use A fueler and not A fuel dot.I havn't had A dead stick (yet) but that don't mean it wont happen the next time i fly it lol.The Saito ( too me ) run's A little richer then the Magnum 4 stroks and are lighter and have more power then the Magnum.I run both motors on my planes I have the 70 the 91 and the 120 Magnum motor and I hav the 72 the 82 the 91 the 100 the 125 and the 150 Saito in my planes and I like the way they all run.I did buy A 72 Saito at A swap meet and it isn't right but as I checked out the Kadet I have it on my clunk in my tank is lose so I am hoping that is the problem there,I havn't had time too look at it yet because I am building on too my house.I do try too loop my fuel line above my carb and that might be something for you too look at doing befor trying too move you tank.hoped this helps and good luck.

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Virginan the Saito 125 don't know if it has an S or not.
    Grandad I meant a fueler DuBro brand
    Also my fuel line i have is pretty long and runs out of tank and down then loops up to fueler then from fueler to the carb. I could not get my wing to fit it hits the back top of the tank or the bottom i guess anyway unless i raise it about a 1/2" it hits the wing and will not let it sit down enough for the dowels to go into the fues. I think I messed it up trying to make it better and messed with the low idle. I think now i may have it back where it is real close to right. Mine while running on the ground just spits alot of unburnt fuel. But that is fine with me as long as it starts good and runs on the top end. Anyway Merry New Year and stuff. Give me a holler when you start to your Sons and I will try to get up and fly a little with yall.
    Virginan maybe someone that knows alot more than me will ring in here and see if they might be able to help out with your. All i can think of is the low idle screw. When I messed with mine then was dying out on top end. Everybody happy new year hope you all ate alot of them Blackyeyed Peas.
    Grandad think i am going to sell my Sundowner not any fun having a plane your scared to fly. Don't know if i am going to go ARF or just without the reciever and battery. I am just not enough of a flyer for a plane such as this and would rather someone else enjoy it while it is still together lol.

    Hey Kid;
    Regarding the proper fit of your tank, cut the two top motor mount screws flush withthe blind nuts and opern the hole in the fire wall for the tank plug a tad. Now the tank will slide all the way in and nothing should protrude where the wing sattle is. Use some foam to wedge the tank tight in its space. That should take care of that problem.

    Hey Kid I did the same thing that thevirginian did too his too get my wing too fit.As far as getting your motor too run right you may have too redo the low and hi end neddle too get it too run and idle right.Some times the vales can be off just enought too cause one too run ruff too.Hope this might help,Kid what size motor do you have in your Sundowner and how much are you going too ask for it?What wing spand is it?

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Did not make Denton but did make Weatherford. It was pretty descent. I got some servo ext. there and my buddy got a couple gyros. He dadgum near ruined his Funtana 100 trying out the gyros. It was funny watching him. The plane kinda had a mind of its own it seemed like. They came out after the first flight. Yes warmer is better. I am not good with the cold anymore. After working out in it for ever it is nice now to sit back and let someone else get cold while i don't lol. My son don't think so but what does he know he is a kid yet. Sure just give me a holler and i will try my best might bring my son along with me if he can make it. He has not started with glow yet. He just does not have the place to work on or store them. And I have not been able to get him to fly mine much either. He is worried he will crash one of them. As I am about flying anyone else's plane. And that would be very easy for me to do i am practiced at the art of hard landing.

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Grandad the Sundowner has the Saito 180 w/ maybe 2 gals. run thru it. Most of it in the backyard. I have flow it 3 times for a total of about. 10 min. I fly it and am just so nervous that i land it quickly lol. I bent the landing gear the last time. Just bent the gear though nothing else.
    Saito 180
    DS 821's everywhere
    On board glow. Works off the throttle setting 60- 70.00
    Volt Meter
    90Degree muffler adapter to keep it in cowl
    only hole in cowl is for needle valve
    80" wing span
    It is pretty fast Grandad But i am sure not as fast as the bigger gas engines are
    6V & 4V batteries one for glow and other for elec.
    Spektrum 7000 reciever. Will keep
    That is pretty much how mine is set up.
    Will e-mail you with more details don't want to get to far off topic.
    it sits right beside my FRENZY 100 lol.

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Since the G23 was a failure in this airframe I have been keeping my eyes open for and finally scored one of those BME/SupreTiger 90 gas conversions. Guy at the club has one in a warbird and they are just scary powerful. Now just shake this cold and get a somewhat sunny day and maybe I can get inspired to put this in my replacement Frenzy.

    WAY too much weight. Had to put over a pound in the tail to balance it. Snapped the wings right in two just when it started to get interesting.

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Just got one on Sat. Kinda liked it from the first time I laid eyes on it.Going to be powered with an enya 120. But awaiting word from manf about the damaged wing I found when i opened it up. Nothing too serious, easily fixed. Just see if will maybe send me the matching covering to repair it with.

    Anybody haveing any problems with the landing gear holding up?? looks rather lightly built in that area.

    Specs on a 26 say 53 oz so you are right there. Add another 1+ pounds in the tail to balance and it is just too heavy.

    still waitin to see what hanger 9 says bout the wing. I will keep everyone updated.



    EDIT.. hanger 9 is sending me out the covering I need to do the repairs.

    RE: *New H9 Frenzy-100 ARF*

    Well, i fixed the damage last night, though I haven't recived the replacement covering yet. I don't know who or what smacked this but crushed 2 ribs and 3 sections of the sheer webbing. The damage I saw on top was more cosmetic than anything else and the spar was ok.

    At first inspection, it looked as if the spar had been broken, but was basicaly just bent ( lack of a better term) I removed the damaged sheer web and gently pushed everything back into alignment and then glued a 1/8th inch lite ply sheer web into place to hold it all together. I also wicked some thin CA into the sheeting to strengthen it.

    After I reshrunk the covering on the top of the wing, you can't even see it was damaged.
