*HC3-SX is not offered by itself. Since it's already configured and tuned ... I would like for the buyer to not have to deal with the setup time and enjoy the Heli ASAP. Than they can take the time to figure it out later. If the Goblin gets sold with the HC3-SX, I'll be asking the same question for the HC3-SX...LOL

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a long deliberation ....I have come to the verdict I will not be flying my Goblin 500 Red/White at all. I purchased the Goblin in hopes to fill the gap between my Trex 500 & Logo 600 while making the progression to ultimately the 700 class platform. I realized this after not flying her for past 6 months...I'm presently flying my Logo 500 Twins

After buying the kit on February 22, 2012 ... I spent two months building. Watched the Goblin Build Video by Bert (50 times ... didn't have to open up the Manual) Finalized the build and had 2-3 flight to tune the HC3-SX to dial in the cyclic gain, tail gain, Rescue - Bail Out option and Stabilization - Self Level Horizon Mode. The Tail holds awesome due to it's design, unlike the 630/700/770's tail grip layout. The Tail hub behaves like main rotor head. When pilots say, "FLIES BIG" ....ever wonder what they mean? G5! Tail is on rails and like SOLID GOLD!!! After the maiden and two tuning flights .. I haven't flown since.
After flying (respectively) X-Heli, Hobby King and Blade products with questionable electronics and components... I've learned my lesson with my fair share of crashes (it's usually dumb thumb after an electronic failure ....LOL. When the ESC or Motor fails, I freaked out b/c I don't know what to do. How to you auto when you can barely fly in a straight line?!?!)

DESCRIPTION

So I dug deep in my wallet and I lied to myself by buying the necessary items one by one slowly.
I'm sure everyone knows how much the items are going for retail so I won't bother listing the retail price. But I will list the components details:

Helicommand HC3-SX FBL v1.17 (none Demon)
JR DSMX SAT x 2
Align DS610M x 3 Full Size Cyclic Servo
Align DS650M Tail Servo
Quantum 4020-1200kv Goblin Edition motor
Kontronik Jive 100LV version 9 (running on Mode 4)
Master & Slave wire ran to FBL Unit
BEC is set @ Factory Default and is "BOMBPROOF" resulting in simplified, reliable and clean installation
Tail blades are KBDD Pure White 84.5mm - New

MODIFICATIONS

Full size Align DS610M x 3 cyclic servos
Fusuno Carbon Fiber full size servo adapters
Quick UK Swash Plate for slop free operation
Links and swash plate balls to make setup work
Mikado servo arms to exact SAB's recommended specification
Elevator arm trimmed for proper clearance
(see first photo under MODIFICATIONS)
Canopy raised for full size servo by moving up canopy mounts
Canopy has a Magnetic Lock to keep it from flapping
Canopy opening has been widen for ease of installation and cracking

WIRING

I suffer from Heli OCD ... not by choice, but from many unexpected dirt naps. I'm very meticulous and methodical...but not in a creepy killer kinda way. Only when it comes to building cars (real ones) and RC Helicopters am I perfectionist.
Blue Loctite is used through except:
- Main shaft spindle
- Tail grip spindle
- I used Red Loctite
Servo and ESC wires are branded
ESC wires are hot glued to the bottom of frame
Motor to ESC wires are zip tied and careful attention paid so it will not rub against frame or interfere with the Kontronik.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS

The blades on the heli is for testing and will be included
Original Photo is not Included
Owners Manual - NIP
Serial Number - Not Registered
Extra main gear - Used
Extra tail pitch lever - Used
Extra plastic landing skids brackets - Used
Comes with 2 battery tray & strap (the other one is in the Goblin 500)

GOBLIN'S HELI FAX REPORT

I purchased all the items for the Goblin 500
These are the original boxes that I purchased retail
I did not use anything pulled from another Heli
I do no buy and sale Heli's ... This is from my own collection
Total of 3 flights or should I say 20 minutes of usage
Safe to say all the parts are pretty much excellent condition

Shows condition of front skids and tail skid

ISSUES

In the interest of full disclosure, I must inform of all the flaws.

Canopy has a blemish when I got it
I buff and polish to make it more presentable
Left land skid carbon fiber peel (CA'd it to keep from splitting more)
Right canopy screw is stripped
One of the main blade on heli had a nick I sanded down a little bit too much. You can see it but can't feel it

Asking Price shipped to lower 48 states:
BNF as listed above - $1575.00 shipped
BNF version w/ AR7200BX instead of HC3-SX - $1375 shipped
ARF version w/o FBL - $1175.00 shipped
ARF version w/o FBL & ESC - $925.00 shipped

* I prefer not to part the Goblin further than without FBL & ESC for now.

My time and effort is not included the price but my expertise, support and friendship is!

*I will entertain all offers
*I will entertain all trades
*I do not need anymore guns ... maybe grenades! (Just Kidding)
*If I were to trade, these are the conditions:
- Please Give me a list of what you have & not ask me what I want
- You would need to send me your item first
- Than I will check and send this item within 24 hrs.
- I don't want any 500 or smaller helicopters
- If you are alright with this ... than we work something out
*If you are comfortable with Paypal as a gift, I will pass the savings onto you
*If you want to make payments, I will keep the Goblin for you and ship it after you are paid up.
*I will not sell the HC3-SX by itself

TOTAL PACKAGE

For those that are getting into the Hobby...WELCOME ABOARD!
I can offer you something very attractive.
I have a JRX9502 DSM2 and a Gens Ace 6S 65C~130C 4000mah pack (20 cycels...mainly used for testing). I can setup the TX to have the rescue bail out assaign to the trainer momentary switch aka "Jesus Switch" as I like to call it. It involves opening up the TX, solder some connections. I will setup TX to Goblin 500, every function of the HC3-SX ready to ROCK! If this sounds like that will work for you, let me know! I can also ship the bird whole: just thaw, charge battery and fly! No assembling ..
I will offer you full support, tips, advice from setup to flying lessons if needed.

Thanks for your interest......and stay thirsty for 3D my Friends!

Thanks Ron and Bluewave1016! I just want to be clear and make sure I cover all the bases. PM sent regarding your question. Figured this will spare me some PM's asking the basic questions. Plus Bluewave1016 just confirm it for me: be some good reading for some.

But sadly I think it might reflect my OCD-ness?!?

OK everyone ... I was testing out the Goblin 500 with the following (potential buyer requested):
Edge 523mm FBL
Governor on the 100LV to 47.5% for a 2150-ish HS
(I know this is low even for Kontronik but for the purpose of testing)
Pulse 6S 5000mah

Got 8 minutes of:
Big air
Up right figure 8's
Piro Circles figure 8's circuits
Chaos flips
Piro loops
8 point tic tos skid in & away
All with sloppy collective

Able to do all maneuvers with plenty of kick
Heli leveled nice even with abrupt cyclic inputs
Tracked very well

Results coming down:
ESC - 139.9 degrees
Motor - 119.9 degrees
Battery - 109.7 degrees
DS610M cyclic servos - 99.8 / 107.9 / 97.2 degrees
DS650 tail servo - 92.5 degrees
Blades - tons of bug splatters! . .

This was a "BETA" test in the interest of low head speed 3D. If I:
Drop the pinion to 16T
Drop the flight time to 7:00 minutes
(timer starts from spool up to skids down)
ESC Temp and pack's voltage would be well within optimum range.

..... End result!?!?

I decided to keep the heli and building the buyer one exactly like it for the same price. Anyone interest in my Low HS G5 setup or have questions .... Feel free to ask!
