Default Goblin 630, 700, or 770?

I'm trying to decide which goblin to go for. I don't want the 500 - already have a TREX 550e.
A 14S system on the 770 scares me. Any thoughts on the pros/cons with these three machines?
Thanks!

Nothing to be scared about with a 14s 770. I'm in the process now of converting my 12s 700 into a 14s 770. Go big or go home

The 700 is the sweet spot of the lineup.

The 770 is awesome for those people wanting more, but it will cost you more in packs, motors, blades, etc.. Also intimidating for many people.

The 630 is a little bit cheaper on the electronics and blades, but not that much. It has a more smack type feel in the air as it has a higher disc loading than the 700. It is a brute in the 600 class, most machines will be lighter and less powerful in comparison. Not really an apples to apples comparison to other 600 class machines.

Most people like the 700 but I like the 630 more as its a bit more agile. If you like smack 3d go for the 630 or get the bigger ones for big air/speed type flying.

Yeah,... I'm not a big 3D guy. Not yet. Just interested in everyone's opinion. I currently have a 550E TREX and thinking about going for a 700 size as well one day. The Align 700E DFC looks like the big brother to what I'm flying now. But some of the guys down at the field have Goblins and they love them! They all mostly have the 700 - some 500's as well.
The 770 looks like a beast; I'm still a relative noob and that looks too intimidating for me to fly right now.
So please keep the opinions coming.
Thanks!

I love to fly all my goblins. Big air and some light 3d. goblin 700 is the bset mix of size and speed. There is just something about the feel of the 700 size. The 770 is a monster, awsome to watch in the air flip and role. 630 is fun to just throw around a bit and practice with. thats just my 2 cents

Just being facetious. Spent a lot before the 630 without regrets.
