Is there any reason to run grounding wires with the goblin for static build up? Just looking for opinions. Has anyone ever had a goblin static hit with spectrum?

Thanks

Dan

I have not had to ground mine and I have had it for over a year and a half.

I do live in Fl but I have had other Helis affected by static in the past. The Goblin seems to be unaffected.

The Goblin belts are the anti-static type. Some of the new belts, it's actually printed on the belt anti or non-static.

cf conducts electricity, so chances are it will ground each time it lands , not much chance to build up ??, Just a guess here
