I was introduced to this little airplane from ParticleMan over on YouTube. I saw him flying it and I knew that I needed it. I love the Edge platform, in fact, I own 2 Balsa models of the Edge 540 and love flying them. Even though this plane has more of an MXS nose on it, it still looks like an Edge 540 with the wing profile. So I put in an order with Banggood and ordered the plane. You can check out the model at the link below. US$92.68 42% XK A430 2.4G 5CH 3D6G System Brushless RC Airplane...

You know we are getting close when we install the engine into the chassis and set the gear mesh. In this video, not only do we install the engine and set the mesh, but we also replace that metal spur gear with a plastic spur gear, replace the clutch bell that the metal spur chewed up, but we also installed the fuel tank and plumbed in all of the fuel line and installed the muffler.

If you want to make your life just a little bit easier, use a servo tester to center your servos before you install them into your helicopter. On the Goblin 380, you can't get the arms off once you install them into the helicopter. You can do this with the gyro, but doing it this way is just a little faster IMO and helps save some time in the setup process.

I knew there was something wrong with this diff as soon as I turned it in the teardown video. I have had this happen before so I went ahead and picked up a new kit to rebuild it.
This is an in depth video of the Rear Diff Rebuild so it is a little longer than my usual videos. Since the diff rebuilds were so long, I broke them up into two separate videos.
