Mine has been great, I know the trick for me is to make sure the blades are perpendicular to the boom and slide from low to high. Hope this helps........Ron

There was a guy who posted on SAB's Facebook page, upset that they would have the audacity to make a new tool when they have such a horrible canopy design to fix. Everyone sort of beat him down, but I guess some haven't figured out how to easily remove it. Blades sideways, and it's a piece of cake. I personally wouldn't change a thing. It works perfectly (when you have it figured out), it looks cool, and if they changed it I would have to buy another one.

Perhaps this guy should learn on a logo canopy before graduating to a goblin canopy.
It's a simple matter of technique. I love the look of the goblin. The look of the canopy flowing into the boom is what makes it so unique.

The ability to load the batteries from the rear would be great though. The design comes close to allowing for it.

no issues here.. except that my canopy holes were not drilled right. so I have to kinda notch one side to allow servo movement.

I agree, mine are nut drilled perfectly straight either...and I have had 2 canopies. Both were skewed a little bit. But I make it work.
