Welcome. That 500 flies very nice. I had one for awhile and loved it. I think most are feed up with that drama over there but some welcome it. Anyhow, nice to see you here as well

Welcome BrokeDad

Your on the good site now

Mark is a lot easier to get along with than TowPilot
and a lot more reasonable

He also isn't a wanna be hardass with a chip on his shoulder

This site isn't as active as it used to be
but it used to be the number 1 heli site

ageing is manditory maturity is optional

I am really happy with it. It had some nice extras he didn't put in the for sale ad. There is an ADDCap Receiver Capacitor module, a RFID bump tag on the battery, and a TM1000 telemetry module not mentioned. A super deal overall.

Now if I can just get good weather to do more than hover it. Everything looks good after a couple of hovers.

These were the other specs from the ad:

Goblin 500

quantum 4120-1200kv
Three BK-DS5001hv mini cyclic servo
BK-DS7005hv tail servo
Yep 120 ESC
Skookum Sk540 red FBL w/ 2X Spektrum 9645 DSMX Sats
Sab 500mm blades
Sab 70mm blades
Upgraded pulley
Glacier 6S4400 45C about 70 cycles

$599 + free shipping lower 48 (We settled on $575)

Hi linemen. All is good now as everyone helped me find alternative heli places. It just sucks starting over with a low post count and no trade ratings on them. I guess I can always refer to mine there until people who don't know me get acquainted.

It was nothing but a slap on the wrist we all got for posting content down in the Sin Bin one mod there didn't like. There is worse stuff shown on network TV but whatever.

My fleet is good now with 22 helis. I really should part with some but have this hoarding problem. LOL.

Interesting, I bught a goblin 500 just today and the gentlemen wanted 599. We settled on 575 as well. I have diff servos and a Thor pack, same motor but a diff flybarless unit. I can't wait to get mine and build it up.
Do you need to do anything special to run the 510 or 526 blades?
Also do you know if the new goblin 500 sport landing gear and canopies are compatible with the original G500?
Thanks but I'm kind of a newbie to the goblin but I think I'll be getting a speed G someday. I'm hooked on SAB!!! Lol.

You shouldn't need to do anything with those blades as far as changing pinions etc. It sounds like you got a great deal too. What FBL did you get on yours ? You mentioned building it up so is it still in kit form, partially assembled, or what ?

I dunno if the sport stuff fits. It's only my second SAB. I had a 570 but it was set up for 12S. I only flew it a dozen times. I decided to sell it and made $100 over what I paid and got this 500. The investment in packs is enough just for big 6S ones.

This is the first heli I've had with the added capacitor back up module (It glows a cool green light). I imagine I won't be experiencing any brownouts. I'm still deciding what all telemetry I want logged. I just upgraded to a used DX9 from a DX6. It's so nice having the extra channels. I haven't gotten more than a few of my helis installed on it yet.

These 500's and up are quite a whole other beast. If it wasn't for having the nitro Shuttle plus it woulda brought back the fear factor the first time I spun it up. The jump in size from a 400/450 is a big one. I have 7 helis flyable in that size right now. This G500 is my flagship electric and it's gonna get treated as such.

I guess it's an align gPro, idk I'm prob going to use my microbeast on her. My fleet consists of an old school jr ergo 60, raptor 90, a rave env 700 nitro, and now a goblin 500. I'm still learning to Hoover but I'm absolutely hooked. I just got my first simulator and hooked it up yesterday. I'm thinking I'm going to buy the new trex150x for practice pretty soon before I try the G500 out.
I run a CNC Machine for a living so my attention to detail is pretty spot on, I get more of a kick tinkering and setting these birds up then I do flying them so far. I am a futaba guy so I have the 8j and the extra channels are nice even though I have ever used the extras lol. You should add me on the buddy list so we can compare set ups on our new 500s and stay in touch bud.

I would say that u may have gotten alil bit better of a deal then me as far as value? What do you think? Are the servos in each of equivalent value? I'm sure your flybarless system is more expensive then my Gpro. Either way I believe we both got smoking good deals when you step back and look at the craftsmanship of an SAB product!

The BK servos are HV ones. About $65 each. The tail one is a bit more costly. I don't really need the added torque of HV the way I fly right now. Many of my beater 400 class helis I even put in mini metal gear ANALOG servos on the cyclics. For flying around doing loops, rolls, inverted etc they are fine. Those were $20 for a set of 4 I won't even bother repairing them. I haven't broken one yet though.

A GPro is essentially a VBar in disguise I think. I have four different FBL's in my stuff.. Yikes. I should pick a brand and stick with it. I have VBars, Brain/Ikon, AR72XX, and now a SKookum.
