Default Goblin 700 Speed flying last weekend.

This is my Goblin 700 speed which was cobbles together from a collection of second hand bits and pieces, so by large heli standards was something of a bargain. The airframe I got second hand but it had never even been fully built so was just like new... I love a bargain
  • Airframe + blades: Goblin Speed 'carbon' second hand but unflown
  • Motor: Quantum 4530 500kV purchased for next to nothing as was 'suspected faulty' (it was fine)
  • ESC: YGE 160HV from my spared box (bought used years ago)
  • FBL: Vbar silver-line (used)
  • Servos: Align DS820M/825M (second hand but unused)

I've been told that these can be set up to pull over 300kph level flight. Possible? Nice aircraft.

I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to B.S.

Yes, specialist speed helis have been clocked at over 300kph. These are a bit more specialised than the Goblin though. The Goblin Speed is basically a standard Goblin 700 with more aerodynamic bodywork so it wont be quite as fast as the 'from the ground up' specialist speed helis. I built mine up for normal aerobatic/3D flying so it's running 3D main and tail blades and it's not setup for the extreme high headspeed and big pitch range that speed helis use.
