Views on goblin 700
Hi guys im looking to get goblin 700,

For those of you that have them and fly them how do you rate it. and how many of you changed the head to the hps,

As I keep seeing these come up for sale with only 4 or 5 flights on them. So people either don't like the way they fly or they are scared of crashing it.

Thank paul.

I'm waiting for one To get cheap enough so i get some spare parts. They fly great. I run the Stock head at 2200 rpm. I think most people sell them because they're very agile. And somewhat intimidating.https://facebook.com/UtahHeli

Thanks for reply, I know there is something due to low flight times before they sell them.

The Goblin 700 is a fun, progressive, well engineered machine. I have logged well over 150 flights on mine and it has continued to be an absolute thrill to fly. I find that some people who love the idea of owning such an exotic looking machine don't always like flying something that to them feels exotic (read: expensive). There are also a number of people who just don't fall in love with the look. I was opposite... didn't care for the look at first and then came to really enjoy it. And then there are some that expected something more and don't recognize it for what it truly is meant to be, a hard banging flying machine, not a shelf trophy where every drop of paint and carbon is show quality (show quality paint work doesn't last too long with me anyways LOL). You probably have to ask yourself which camp you fall in.

It's not for everyone, certainly, and it can be intimidating, for sure, but I find it to be an extremely agile and capable machine that for me has been cheaper to fly, crash and repair than my other 700+ sized machines. It also helps that with the setup I have in it it is monstrously powerful.

Has it replaced my Raptor G4s? No, but it is not about replacing in my mind, it scratches a different itch for me. For me that itch is best summed up by Doc Brown, "when this baby hits 88mph, you're gonna see some serious shiz".

I'm about 70-ish flights into my Goblin 500 and finding it to be the perfect companion to its larger brother. Leaves a big giant smile on my face.

I agree..The tail is what gets me..Its much easier to see than say a t rex black boom tube..Especially doing piroflips.The boom is massive and is definitely easier to see..

I have about 350 flights on my Goblin now and its been a great machine. I fly the DFC head and just recently replaced thrust bearings, new dampeners and shims.

As others have said, its a great flying heli. Fast, smooth and with a sound like no other heli out there(other than other Goblins).
Its not only a good smack heli, but its great for fast passes and big air sport as well. I have GPS telemetry on mine and I've clocked it at 105 mph, not even trying.

I've had other 700's in the past and I was a little worried about crashing the Goblin at first. I thought it was alot more expensive to crash compared to other 700's. If you sit down and do the parts list for it and say a Trex 700, the Goblin isn't much more expensive if at all. Low parts count, and the breakaway carbon boom help with crash costs.

I don't think you'll be disappointed with its performance.

Also depends how many other Goblins you have at your club, but other pod and boom heli's become invisible when the Goblin is around. Thats either a good or a bad thing depending on your perspective! LOL.

They're only "agile" if you set them up to be ;-) Bring the head speed down add a touch of expo at 70% throws and it's a pretty pussycat

i think most Goblins for sale at realy low time are from people that got hyped into them without realy being able to afford a (new)700 size electric heli. They realize that every flight drives up the puker factor of fear of crashing and they chicken out.

If you`re able to afford it and you either have the dscipline to fly it at a hight appropriate to your skill or a crash or doesn`t make you broke then the Goblin (or any otehr large electric really) is gonna make you very happy

mine has around 200 fligths on it and i just recently changed to the HPS head, not so much because i wasn`t happy with the DFC but because my DFC swash failed and a new swash was nearly the same price as an offer i`ve got for a complete HPS head.

both heads fly great, i flew the DFC head at very low headspeeds (1100rpm) and it flew just fine as well as at high head speeds. it`s a very easy to maintain and setup heli.

love mine.
