not to de-rail this thread but shouldn't it be 130 degrees?
Hey, didn't I tell you a million times not to exaggerate?

Looks like Mikado have gone for the "Marvin the Martian" look for the TX! Plastic TX, made in China, wonder how much they're asking for it?

Oh well. 13 is the number (but it should be radians, not degrees...)

Here in Europe it's in the shops, regular ~€600 (or "was" in the shops as it's sold out) and the special edition €800 (available immediately).

The Mikado stuff has usually worked pretty well (all my other helis are V-Bar, for some unknown reason I decided to equip the Goblin with a Bavarian Demon "formerly known as Helicommando"). I rarely watch my fingers when flying so who cares about design but I guess my DX8 still has a lot of life in it.

Nice flying You have some mad skills there.

I can't believe how stable that is. Those piro's were just solid in axial there. Only in my dreams.

BTW if anybody cares: I threw out the quick-release battery "upgrade" as the resistance in the 3.5 mm plugs was too high (the plastic actually melted around them).
A change to EC5, and shortening ESC wires, and directly soldering ESC to motor, has given the heli quite a performance boost with a high-C LiPo.

Are you in the heli protection program KF? If so, I understand. I am not as advanced as you and just still occasionally insult glow plank flyers. (Shhh, I might get suspended)
Why in the world does anyone even respond to the posts........? Just ignore them in whole and move on to the topic at hand~!~
I have no idea who any of you are, but I can definitely see how this distraction can lead people with "time is money" attitude to another thread with actual fact based information to help solve whatever issue there having with there RC.
I am no expert, but I am experienced and I would do what I can with the time I am on the forum to help others have a blast with a hobby that is FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!! Not bash and talk smack to people who are only known digitally!?!

My 2 cents, even if noone cares............

And the goblin 380 is a beast of a machine. Now if I can get this silly nose to tail wobble taken care of!!! Any help on that would be awesome

Well it seems resistance is futile, I just pulled the trigger on a nice shiny new red 380, it should complement my 570 very nicely.
