Just because there's no more new episodes doesn't mean we can't keep the news going.

Default New Spektrum receiver voltage issues

The Spektrum 4649T receiver that is the only supported receiver for iKon/Brain telemetry has a voltage issue that causes problems above 7.5v. Here is the full post from MSH USA advising on this issue. This is a Spektrum issue not iKon/Brain.

Ultraleggero Conversion Kit or Ultra Light in Italian for the Protos Max. I assume it is the Max. It doesnt say but the hints that have been given would make it seem so. No price or pics but it shows up on the MSHeli site.

Hobbico is being investigated by the Dept. of Labor in regards to its management of the ESOP. As a former Hobbico employee who was not paid when payment was due in December, I'm hoping the investigation leads to the ESOP monies being accounted for and paid out!

SAB - Thunderbolt T-LINE Tareq Alsaadi Edition Rotorblades

Quote:
SAB has just released a new set of rotor blades that are about the only set of blades that can stand up to the test of the man himself, Tareq Alsaadi. These new blades not only look amazing, but they also have a high modulus carbon production that gives extreme torsional stiffness that can handle direction change equal to or greater than the competition on the market.
The new blades will be released in the 690 and 710 sizes for now under the Thunderbolt T-LINE, and you will see them shown this year at Rotor Live 2017 for the official introduction.

Default RotorHeads Ep 1 Webcast

A new RC podcast/webcast just began, starring Saje, Jonas, and Nick McCoy. Granted it has been available since Feb 19, no one has mentioned it.

Pretty cool approach, talking RC while playing RC in a simulator. Check it out. I hope they continue on this quest.

Jesse Kavros has left Mikado to "explore new opportunities".
Since KS has left SAB and is now flying the Logo (non sponsored) I wonder if Jesse will be adding a Goblin to his lineup??

As a Goblin fanboy I wanted to round-up the announcements made at Rotor Live. I was pretty excited with all the stuff. I took the pics from SAB's Facebook.

Goblin 700T with the new Thunderbolt T blades that look like a checkerboard on several blade sizes. This is basically the Black Thunder with a few enhancements, lighter weight and new paint scheme.



CORRECTION: the 700T will be offered on 690 and 710 versions but SAB will release 730 (for precision flying), 720 (for Speed flying) and 690 "Tareq Gold" blade versions.



Goblin Comet is the new 700 size dedicated speed helicopter. It seems several versions will be released, one with the new rotating landing gear and one without plus the Comet T with the new blades and red paint scheme to match the 700T.



Goblin Fireball is the new "tank" helicopter with direct drive motor from SAB. It has 280 Thunderbolt blades (not T, the regular ones). It is designed to be easier to fix and more resilient to crashes while keeping cost down with new Lexan body instead of Fiberglass or Carbon. It is a direct competitor to the hugely successful Oxy 3.



Goblin Mini Comet is really the Fireball drivetrain and chassis with a full body that resembles the Comet. It is designed to be a fun Speed heli, on the interview it was said it is meant for friendly Speed racing.

Finally, they showcased their new ESC and Servos (which look like re-branded Hobbywing and BK) for their Combo version of the Fireball. And last but not least they offer a GPS for speed to check data and compare between pilots.
