I'm willing to bet its going to be a huge success.
I'm betting with you, Roy.
Given Align's track record and fan club already...it'll sell big.

The canopy is most likely split, as wc said, like several of the new full fuse, speed helis.

I already see about 50 of them each weekend I fly(Goblins). Every table I go to talk to the guys has one and it is like going to a Goblin convention already without adding ten more look a likes.
Sorry but I will stick with my pod and boom. I don't need to spend another $300 just to look like another heli.

This is not new and they did not copy Goblin, F3C has used full fuse for years. Someone else posted the JR link, here is a Hirobo:

To each their own. What I see in the original post is a Goblin in disguise.

Uh, yes, they did copy the Goblin. It looks pretty much EXACTLY like a Goblin canopy and boom when it comes to the lines. The point that they both use full fuses is irrelevant. In fact, the term "full fuse" isn't even entirely accurate for the Goblin.

"He might have quiet a few but as long as they don't resembles nothing in New York or Brooklyn you should be good.

Copy right is as becomes problem lately there's always someone to invest there skill in someone else originally. "Just use Apple vs Samsung) for example.

Apple is now the big winner after all for Samsung have to pay Apple for each device they sold.

"So if Align go on to copy the Goblin and Align start making more money than Saab) then you'll see similar case like Apple/Samsung.

I don't have a dime to swagger on a Goblin anyway each time I see one that crash my heart race for I know the owner have to get a new kit.

ALIGN YOU can pick them the heli and go back flying like nothing never happen in most case.

I'm not a fan of Goblins, or Align, and I don't care whether the chicken or the egg came first - it just doesn't matter...
I still like it.

I'll never buy one, but it still looks cool.
And they will sell a lot of them!

Align should put a sticker on the canopy just like Goblin - "Be Unoriginal"

Ripped off the Compass head so why should they stop there....

I think the Sab Goblin lineup is great as it brought to the heli masses alot of new technology. But there have been belt drives and full canopies before for many years.It is nothing really new. All the FAI type guys have had full fuselages for many years. JR and Hirobo too just to name a few. With the mass production of Goblin heli's it has become the new fad to have a full canopy. The Speed Goblin needs a fuse like that....hmm I wonder if my Align 550 PRO would go faster with one...

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Full fuses of the past are just shells that go over a pod and boom heli. Of course we all know that the boom on a goblin acts as part of the structure of the heli and not just a shell that fits over the boom.

Not too mention they are not made for 3D and add over $1,000 on top of the cost of the airframe.

Maybe nothing new but used in a different way. I have flow most of everything out there and the Goblin, to me is one of the best fliers.

I think they all looks nice, JR, Avant and the Align versions of the full fuse look.
