My new goblin 700
Hi guys just got new goblin 700, I been wanting one for a while,it looks a high quality kit, but as the build goes on there's been a few gripes for a kit of this standard.
1) the metal part at the front of the boom which slides on the nylon bolts was full of resin in the slot, had to Dremel it out to get bolts to slide in.
2) bearings in the idler pully for tail belt not smooth at all feels like the lock tight has got in them, this is factory fitted.
3) factory parts all ready assembled 2 bolts loose and not tightened or have lock tight on them, the rest were lock tighted up good,but if you left it because it states factory assembled you would have problems.

This isn't faulty but the canopy is a right pig to get on and off.

Don't get me wrong I think the heli is amazing but these bits just let the quality down.

Did any one else have any issues Or have I just been unlucky.

The inserts in the carbon fiber left a little to be desired on my kit too.

Get a replacement (HeliDirect RMA'd mine). Mine bound up with even the slightest tension on the bolt, so the pulley wouldn't spin. The replacement is perfectly smooth with a tight bolt.

That's exactly how mine is as soon as you tighten bolt it won't spin.
