A $60 "Super Combo" 450 helicopter? Is it worth actually purchasing? That is what this series is all about. This was the absolute cheapest helicopter kit that I would find. In this series, I will go through what this helicopter needs to get in the air and most importantly, make it SAFE!!! Because out of the box (spoiler alert), it is one of the most unsafe helicopters I have ever seen! Click the links below if you want to check these items out and help us out buy purchasing any of them....
When I was first approached about this quad, I initially turned it down, but then something hit me that I thought might be good for some people with this quad and because of that, I decided to go ahead and allow them to send it to me and make this video. This is the Eachine E56 Pocket Quad otherwise known (as they call it), a "Selfie Drone" from Banggood.
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...
This little action camera from ODRVM is not bad for the price. 1080 videos at 30 frames per second with the option of 720 at 60 frames. The menu system is very familiar since it is using the SJ7000 camera firmware. But whatever you do, do NOT try to update this camera. You will brick it. Get this camera by clicking this link - Amazon.com : WIFI Action Camera Waterproof 2.0-Inch Diving 30M 170 Degree Wide Angle Underwater Camera With 2PCS Battery for Biking, Racing, Skiing, Motocross And...
Installing a canopy is simple, right? WRONG! Not when you move up to a Goblin. The canopy shipps with a 2mm hole already drilled into the canopy. It is up to YOU to ream that hole out to fit the 10mm (1CM for those in america lol) so that you can fit the grommets in it. Yea, I will not be doing this again. Want to know why, just watch the video. Oh, and I put the main and tail blades on as well. So there's that lol. Want to help out Rc-Help FOR FREE? Change your Amazon bookmark to the...
It's time to add some color to this SAB Goblin 380 Helicopter! We are going to put the tail onto the frame, but not before we install the tail block onto the tail boom. I also show you how to easily install the backing blocks and get the holes lined up so you are not banging your head against the wall when they are misaligned. I also show you how I adjust the tail belt tension. After I fly it once or twice, I will be readjusting the belt since they are going to stretch just slightly. Stay...
The tail is one of the key features of the SAB Goblin Helicopter. No torque tubes here, we are running a belt on this little guy. And here is where I encounter my first issue with this kit! In this video, I show you exactly how to assemble the rear tail block including putting together the tail blade grips with the thrust bearings, put all of it onto the tail shaft and spindle and put the vertical tail fin 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.
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...
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...
It Has Begun!!! The build of the Goblin 380 has begun. For those that do not know, this helicopter was donated to Rc-Help by Syndicate on YouTube. I have tried to get him to sign up on here, but at this time, he has not done so yet. I'm still trying lol. This helicopter is being built by the members of Rc-Help and we have 6 people who have supported this build, not including myself. This build is split up into parts to reflect each segment of the build per the manual. In this video, I...

In this video I show you how to install and wire the Align 450 to the Ikon 2 Gyro. The helicopter I'm using in this video is the Align 450 Pro V2 With The Align 450L Dominator Frame so I can put the gyro inside the frame.

Installing the Ikon Configurator may seem simple to some, but for those that have little to no experience with computers they may not know how, and that is what this series is going to cover. We are starting a brand new series that is called RCH Back To Basics (#RCHBackToBasics) to get back into some of the things that we all have to deal with when we first get into the hobby. If you have suggestions on what you would like to see in future videos, post them in the comment section below!...
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...
