I have been goung back and forth as to get s x3 agsin for my "smaller practice" heli or to try the goblin 380. I love the look but have read that they fly pretty heavy. I fly lower to medium headspeeds doing slower smoother 3d type flying. Doesanybody have input? How do they fly? Easy to fix?

I personally don't think Goblins fly heavy. I guess it's a matter of perspective. I've had a few different Goblins and they always felt smooth, handled like they were on rails, were easy to work on, and had good quality parts without any issues on the build. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

I really can't think of any negatives. Some don't really care for the look I guess. I think I'm talking myself into buying another...

My vote would be the X3. Medium head speeds and slow 3D are not where Goblins excel at IMO. They are very snappy, quick of center and prefer higher head speeds. They sound different and look different. The quality of the kit is industry standard but the manuals are very good. Good luck.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.

Goblins are pretty heavy due to all the aluminium and fibreglass. Consider the JR Forza 450, very light, amazing parts quality and so easy to work on. Best autoing 450 ive had and with the least machanics slop of any heli ive had!

60% of the time, it works every time!
