I think the shrouded tail designs are ugly. Don't like'em and wish they would go away.

Your mileage may vary...

Everyone has likes and dislikes. Personally, I like the look of my Goblins and I think the tail design makes it easier to see in the air. So I hope they don't go away.

Yeah, but they grow on you, at least, on me! I love the Goblin now. I also thought it was ugly at first.

No offence, but I'm not a big fan of align! Every day is a new upgrade part, too many part numbers, cheap! I could go on and on, but the bottom line for me... Don't like'em and wish they would go away!

That's my opinion

I didn't like the Goblin's either, until the gas conversions came out. The Goblin looks and sound a lot different.

Goblins are ugly. Aligns are also usually ugly and getting more so as they emulate Goblins. Who cares?

to each his own way
Not exactly what I like design wise or looks.
If they were clever they would make the batteries rear loading so you don't have to remove the canopy every flight.

I'll stick with nitro

spending time, paying attention

I don't know if I would use the word ugly, but the look never has appealed to me.

Mostly I think because being a mechanical person, I have always kinda liked how most traditional helos allow you to see much of the parts inside.

Think what's under a Goblins hood is pretty cool an definitely a original none run of the mill setup. So if it were me, I would enjoy at least letting some of that show.

But to have all that under there but cover 98% of that up, don't know, just seems like a canopy an 4 blades to me then.

Will admit I have never flown one an could imagine the way they are could help a lot for visibility.

Far as tail shroud helis go, I think the chase 360 looks the best.

We made up some rules can we have your moneys now.

I think heli's have recently turned into a fashion show. Specifically it has just changed into how to get the same thing done in a different way. Re invent the wheel so to speak. The Goblin I feel is a great heli with disadvantages as with with any decently made heli. Nothing is perfect and thank god because we would be all flying the same thing.

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