The frame of the Goblin 380 has to be one of the most simple designs I have ever put together. Pair that with the simplicity of putting the mainshaft together and the gears, and this is one of the easiest helicopters to build! In this video, we put the frame together to the lower plate, install the battery release and fit the main shaft into the mainshaft holder in the top plate and get it shimmed up. From there, we stick on the gears and shim them up and we are done with part 2. If you...
Setting up a transmitter to it is ready for the Ikon 2 is quite easy. It sounds complicated, but once you do it a couple times it becomes second nature.

The head on the Goblin 380 does come preassembled, but you MUST take it apart, clean all of the oil off of it and thread lock everything in place. If you are running high head speed or flying 3D, you will want to put the shims in the head which are NOT installed but are included. In this video, I will show you how to completely take the head apart, clean everything up, thread lock everything and finally get the head mounted to the main shaft and install the top plate assembly into the...
One of the most requested videos I have been asked for is "how do I parallel charge batteries". Well, the time has finally come and the video is here! Ever since we posted the video showing us charging 9 3s batteries at 30 amps, people have asked how we could do that at such a high amp rating. And the secret is, they were all in parallel with each other. When you wire batteries in parallel, you are doubling the capacity, but the voltage is staying the same. You are also doubling the...
GearBest sent me this quad for xmas and I figured why not do a review on it. My thoughts on this little guy are about like they are on the Eachine E010, but it feels like this little guy has more punch than a stock E010. With that being said, if I had to choose between this one and the E010, I think I would go with this one! It is just a fantastic little quad to start out on!

After almost a year of planning my solar rig is built and functional. Lets start at the begining with the planning,. I originally started off with a deep cycle battery from Home Depot for boats. After further research what I needed was a golf cart battery.
Everyone that has been in this hobby for a while already knows the benefits of having a simulator. But for those that are new to the hobby, justifying spending $150+ on what some consider a game is quite hard to do. Well I'm here to tell you, that $150 investment will pay for itself, very quickly! The two hottest Simulators out there right now are Phoenix and RealFlight. I prefer Phoenix because you get lifetime updates compared to RealFlight where you have to purchase updates. We are not...
For four years, I have been using a Dynamite Ultra Duo battery charger to keep my machines flying. The Dynamite charger has been a wonderful piece of equipment, but it recently gave up and needed to be replaced. Instead of buying another Ultra Duo, I decided to get with the program, and build a real charging case. The project started with a Plano brand handgun case from Walmart, which is very similar to the more expensive pelican cases. They are high quality cases and I use them for...
Hello everyone, The flybar head setup video is finally here. In this video, I to into more depth on the head than I do in any other video I have made. From adjusting the swash mix, to adjusting the links on the head, to leveling the swash, it's all covered in this video. If you have any questions, post them below. This is a pretty long video, but it's worthwhile if you are just starting out.

If there is one thing that can ruin your day faster than anything, it's when a cold solder joint decides to finally come apart resulting in a crash! Always double check the factories soldered connections before it ends up costing you money!
Too Much Loctite? We have all done it from time-to-time. Put too much thread locker on a screw during a build, or repair. Helicopter, car/truck, boat...it`s a real pain to remove a screw that has been overly thread locked. You either wind up stripping the head or breaking the screw off in the part...or both. Here is a simple, safe and easy way to get them to cooperate. Heat up your soldering iron and hold the tip to the head of the screw for about 30-45 seconds. This should re-liquify the...
Hey guys. This little tip can work for not only helicopters, but for planes, trucks and cars too. I used to just pour all of the screw out on my work bench, in piles according to size and type. This proved to be a bad idea, because they would get mixed up, knocked off the bench, or scattered all over the table. My husband actually came up with a cool idea, that keeps them all sorted by size and type...and also cleans them at the same time. All you need are a couple of cheap ice cube...
If you have listened to RCHN towards the end then you know Justin Pucci has been working on such a thing for almost 4 years now. He has never posted the Tech tip due to the nature of the topic. This project if done wrong can be very dangerous. As of late I have been want to work with my 2 arduinos that I have. I posses 1 Uno and 1 leonardo. This project is being built on the Uno for now. I will need the Mega at some point for the analog pins. My issue with the Uno right now is that it...
In this video, I show you how to do everything from program the transmitter (in my case, a DX9) to the maiden flight switching through all of the different flight modes. Setup of the CC3D is very easy thanks to the Setup Wizard. Just follow along and you will have your CC3D in the air in no time. The only thing that you will have to setup that is not in the wizard is your flight modes. I go through that as well in this video. Have a watch, tell me what you think and ask questions.
