First of all please dont flame me all who have pre orders, im not knocking the kit im sure it will come and it will be great, i want one too, but i want my answer now or i move on, period.

Ive been following the SAB Goblin from the second i heard a "delay" was in effect, memories of the Avant Aurora came back to mind.

For those who are suppose to receive the kit by late january, like now, any news?

I would have dropped my preorder the second i heard there was a delay, so whats the deal? Awsome heli, want one, but when is it coming out.

Really not a hard question. Maybe SAB can answer.

SAB,

When do you plan on having these kits shipped out? I dont see why its not possible to give an exact week, not a day, but at least the week.

As the owner of a small business i find it hard to understand why SAB cannot give accurate info.

Devin

From Goblinadmin on the Goblin website posted yesterday.
We have been getting first shipment of Canomod canopies from Asia and are putting them into kits. We will start shipping within Italy soon. More Canomod canopies are on the way. Need to wait for them to finish all after Chinese New Year. For better logistic, shipment to most American and Asian countries, we will ship our parts to Canomod to package and ship the kits to everywhere else from there so we do not have to import stuffs into Italy which may drive the cost of the kit up unnecessarily.

The Chinese New Year BS ended yesterday, 1-25-12. Things should start moving quickly now. I have one coming (100% prepaid) and expect it to arrive about mid to end of Feb.

Goblin--
From what I had heard..the kits were being held up for patent issues(waiting for the patents to finalize)...they are patenting the motor mount and main gear I think?

who knows though...but I did also hear that there are supposed to be like 600 kits being released int he first batch...

so I'm guessing there will be plenty of kits to be had..

Delivery date of early/mid feb

Patents...
the Patents I was referring to have nothing to do with the conflict with Compass

I was referring to them securing new patents for their new Main gear and motor mount design.

I heard they were waiting for the patents to be finalized

The link I posted mentions, in addition to the patent issues with Compass, exactly the info you provided

The interesting thing is that SAB didn't really provide any details about how the issue with Compass was resolved. It was resolved by the Austrian Distributor / Shop / developer who made this kind of heads years ago...

About anything else... shipping seams to be starting in the next days. People here already got an email to do payment for their coming kits.

February 7th they should start to ship out. ( To the distributors)..I guess that you need to add a couple of weeks for them to arrive to distributors and from there to end customer.
