Hi, The servo align 430m fit in goblin380?
Thanks!!
Yes, those should work for the cyclic servos. The tail servo is a mini-size, though, not micro like the cyclics.

On the connector questions above, I'm using EC3 connectors and have close to 100 flights on mine now and the connectors all still look great. Everything comes down pretty cool, actually.

I like the green edititon as well, and would love to have one, but it's a bit too late (for me anyways) I would have bought it instead of the red/black kit.

Well, instead of being bummed about not buying the green carbon edition, I emailed Canomod about getting my own custom carbon canopy and boom. I really like the special design they have available for the 570, so I asked if I could get one for the 380...They said "sure" so I'm going for it. Might have the red bits changed to orange drawing inspiration from the vintage Gulf racing Ford GT40

I got my lower battery tray frame bolted togather last night but the rear hole above the landing gear supports was off n my battery tray seems little distorted where the bling nuts are for the rear frame hole n rear landing gear. Any else run into this ?? Also where the landing skid skid mounts doesn't seem flat ?? I filed the frame a bit to get to the blind nut but didn't seem right , was thinking about the aluminum batt tray ??

I found several problems with the kit I do want to point out that I have a first batch kit and Small issues are too be expected.

Frame holes not lining up with plastic battery tray. I had to sand the frame edges in a few places and slightly enlarge a few frame holes.

Cyclic servo geometry. I had to shim each servo 1.38 mm (=4 M2 washers per screw 16per servo) to get the cyclic to swash links straight up and down with BOTH the plastic and aluminum servo supports.

Tail servo needs to be shimmed as well so that the pushrod dosent grind into the tail boom. They sell shims for this although you definitely want to do this before you put both frame plates together it will be much easier

For the final issue and the one that personally upsets me is the cheaper button head cap screw's for the frame and servos ( We all know how big a pain it is to have a stripped head on a screw of such importance:mad I ordered the socket head M2 for the servos and socket head M2.5 and nice orange aluminum washers for the frame looks great and maintenance will now be easier

Hope this helps. The Goblin 380 is an amazing flying helicopter that is extremely diverse! You can fly slow relaxing low HS flights or crank it up and fly faster and harder than any helicopter in its class. Very responsive fly's like it's on rails

Just the rear hole of frame easly fixed but tonight the radis arm one side was so tight I had to deburr one side to get bearing to press in when it should slide as the other 7 did but got it sorted with a exacto knife I would prefer these brg to be factory installed as the 648 lock tite has a habit of gumming up brgs so I used tooth pick n added very little Lt hope they say free moving just easier for them to do this and if they trash a brg very easy for them to change I would have to order wait n try again. Just my opinion also with no shim in the head block my spindle brg are a bit notchy but seeing they don't rotate I will let it slide for now can't wait to finish couple more late nights n hopefully I can buy some lipos n the quick release. Wish they sold them with out all the hoopla I don't need a charging lead ?? N 3 more trays ?? Sell just the quick connects ?? Thank you
