Since they are re-vamping the drive system, I imagine the manual won't be available until after that occurs.

All I have heard about was there taking the hole out of the feathering shaft/spindle and making changes to the main gear, I doubt that would change the manual considering there not changing the layout.

Still on schedule for a jan release?

Don't want the manual, want the heli :)

In the Italian forum, SAB wrote that the publication of the manual is postponed for hide as long as possible their technical solutions.

There is nothing to hide anymore you could put The heli together with the exploded views if you had to and they haven't seem to hide before... Y now, did they say when they would release it?

I agree with you. Unfortunately sab didn't provided any update or confirmation on the release date.

for me in the manual, if done well, can be a lot more information than an exploded view.

Maybe you can not give wrong to SAB. Just look Align, their new head is very similar to that of the Goblin...

If they have a good reason, I dont see a problem. However I have problems with giving out promises and then not doing it, and yet not saying/explaining anything.

If they just simply put out a statement on if it is delayed, till when, or if it is deliberately withheld for some reason, that should suffice. However keeping silence is not the best PR move I think.

Depends on your style of flying but for most non Tareq/Kammerer flyers I think that will be more than enough..

my 4530 X-era easily reached the specified 10KW... be careful with your battery choice, it should match your set-up and flying style.

Another thing is that with the specs from the Goblin, the Gens Ace 5300 batteries are not going to fit (60mm vs 64mm). I've heard somewhere it might be possible to mod the frame to make it work but will have to wait till I get my hands on it to see. Not sure what kind of "mods" people were talking about.

Mr goblin said to just drill 2 holes in the frame. Didn't specify where but I'd guess ab 4 mm lower on the front of the battery tray to miss the motor shaft. Not positive ab it tho. He said with this mod would accommodate 64mm packs

I asked the same thing in the Goblin-helicoptor forum and this was the answer.

Its a language thing. I think he meant they are withholding the manual until they can add last minute build tips.

I read in an Italian forum that they want to uncover their last secrets until the first are shipped...

It appears that the rudder servo is mounted in the tail boom. Can anyone confirm this? If the tail boom has the break away bolts in the event of a crash will it be yanking the servo lead apart if in fact that is where the servo gets mounted?

Yes it is in the tail boom.

hmmm...maybe I could put an extension on and secure the servo side. That way if the tail were to depart it would unplug at the extension rather than rip the wire apart.

Just downloaded and watched Berts video on the Goblin setup. That is exactly what he said to do. Boom will break free and servo will be undamaged

Just watched Berts video on the Goblin and I want it even more now :) Excellent news (at least it was news to me) about the tail gear ratio for us that like to fly with a somewhat lower HS.. I'm thinking of running 1800-ish on mine with the occasional raise to 2000.. 2200+ is waaaay overkill for me :D
