So Ive been flying Nitro (and a few electrics (Protos 500 being the largest until I purchased and built my new Goblin 500.

I took out the 600N last night for a spin and I was really taken aback by the lackluster performance I never felt before flying the Goblin 500. While I really don't like 4 minute flights and the hassles of charge, stor charge etc, I cannot argue with how I felt last night taking my Trex600 thru its paces. Like I lost a good friend, like something was taken away from me.

I think I am ruined now to ever fly another Nitro. My Trex was no slob. Very fast servos, awesome flyer, but as I flipped and spun every which way, I was thinking, man your taking a long time to complete that spin, roll whatever. The Piro rate is the ONLY thing my Trex does faster than the Goblin but I know this is easy to make the Goblin as fast there or faster.

Never thought this would happen. Mixed emotions now.

Love the Goblin, now disappointed in the 600N.

3.5 to 4 min flights keep me longing for more flight time and thinking of getting a nitro for just that reason! Lol

3.5 minute flights, you need less HS or pitch or both I love the feel of my Goblin as well, I know how it is and nitro is a HUGE thing of the last for me

I thought Nitro was out until I fitted YS120's. Whole new thread that's been done many times before :-)

Stirring the pot
Nothing like a 3.5 to 4.0 minute flight time for...... warming up?

Personally, I like to fly and not warm up.

Not to take anything away from the goblin, but I have seen crazy flip and roll rates on a flybarless 600N.

Yea, you can't match the power, but you are giving up some serious, I mean serious flight time. We are talking half, fifty percent, divided by two.

And you spend more time cooling down than you do flying.

My favorite saying is;

If you want to throw down, go electric.
If you want to fly, you need a nitro.

But I have to say, when the magic smoke comes out while your flying, it does look cool.

If its OS then peak is 17000 engine rpm/8.5 gear ratio gives 2000. Add a bit so when it loads its in the power band so 2050-2100 would be about right. You should be able to get a decent flip/roll weight. Adjust the FBL controller or different/lighter blades.

Flew machines with YS91's and YS120's for a couple of years.

Decided to sell all my nitro heli's and got a electric machine, didn't have it for long, sold it and got a Goblin 700.

I don't regret selling the nitro machines, my Goblin out performs all the nitro machines I owned.

mine is not the dfc. the goblin 500 is now not sold with the DFC head. turns out the DFC head was not all it was cracked up to be. have you ever heard the expression some fishing lures catch fish and some fishing Lures catch fishermen? the benefits of the DFC do not outweigh the disadvantages.

HPS

Wish I had it fitted from day one. Absolutely amazing.

Runs on rails.

Yeah no way your 600 sized nitro is going to compete with your 500 sized Gobiln. The Gobby has more power and less size and weight. Couple that with high head speeds, it will not be much of a match for sure. See with that nitro, you are limited to gear ratios so super high HS are harder to achieve.

My Goblin 700 (HPS) is ruthless at 2200. I get 5 minute flight times and stupid power.

I'm afraid if I got a 700 I would be like hooked for life. my friend told me if you think about where you want to go its already there. stupid power pretty much describes that. I just went with a 500 because I didn't want to do two batteries.
