I dunno, the newest video there is from 2014. Sometimes businesses forget to update their website to take down old pages...

Hey Bert, you've been slacking on your flight videos. Would love to see a black nitro video.

I also just bought a used 180 a few months ago and I've only put a few flights on it. It's a great little help but only fly at the field these days. Im going to hold on to it for a bit and see if I fly it at our new house. If so then maybe a mini Gob.

A mini sounds interesting, although I think it is ridiculous to even post a vid that you can hear more than you can see. I understand keeping it sort of tight, but why post if you can't do more than that? I like the idea of a small goblin, but that video does nothing to spike any interest. For now I will stay on the Oxy 2 path, at least they don't post ghost videos.

And yet there is this thread and one in the main section. Clearly there is interest...just maybe not for you.
I was thinking Oxy 2 but no longer

Well, I didn't think it would NOT entice somebody who is already a Goblin owner/fan. But it really does nothing for someone considering, especially when you can't even tell it is a goblin, unless someone has better eyes than me.

For all you know it is an Oxy 2. I just think it could have been just a tad more clear, nothing against the possibility of another Goblin.

Except the facebook post was from SAB, and said "baby Goblin".....

I'm not a Goblin fan...but the baby one will be on my list. The video (a teaser) is just like any other one. They are designed to create a stir and get people talking. And they always do. The next one (or still pics) will normally give a little more clarity to the new model.

Guys, there is no way this thing is the size of a 130x or 180cfx...

The best they could do with goblin design is likely a 250-280 ish main blade.

This looks to be in direct competition with the Oxy3.

I love my goblins and the only one I regret getting is the 570. It is set up with 12s and flies great but if I'm charging 2 batts per flight might as well go 700 right??

Single pack load and go helis are it!

I would like to see a 500 battery setup like the 380 option!

I digress. Looking at cues to the "shadow" in the video it's not a 200mm or less blade size. I will stake my reputation as a professional wrastler on this!!!

Default Baby Goblin?

Does 'New Concept' suggest it does not share familiar Goblin airframe traits?

Hope 'coming soon' really means ready for Christmas!🙂

New concept -that looks A LOT thinner than a regular Goblin. 2 stage gearing perhaps?

These companies really need an English editor....

New concept is getting away from the previous servo arrangement.

Although it allowed for better servo geometry it made for awkward canopy design with slightly more challenging installation and removal.

I would have to agree that the servo arrangement is what will be the most drastic change on the smaller Goblin. Just looking at that photo, you can tell it is much tighter in that area.

Either way, this just changed my buying decision for a small heli. Can't wait to see more on this.
