SAB GOBLIN 700 Flybarless Electric Helicopter Kit GREEN [SG700]
Regarding comments by Bob about Burt's crash in Orlando, Bert reported the heli only suffered a couple hundred dollars in damage (basically typical crash damage). The main frames were fine. While the cause of the crash was a malfunction, Bert was pushing the heli in an insane way that only a few fliers in the World can. Best of all, as a result the problem was identified and fixed. Bert says he has hundred of flights on the Goblin without incident. That's good enough for me. He also mentioned the belts last a long time and when they fail it does not bring the heli down. Basically teeth just start to come off the whole thing does not atrip like main gears sometimes do on regular direct pinion helis. Overall the Goblin design is unique and exciting. I think the wait will be worth it.
