The FT Goblin was born from a collaboration between FliteTest and ReadyMade RC to create a foamboard version of their STRIX Goblin, a high-performance FPV plane. This plane fills the gap between the STRIX Goblin and the Nano Goblin in both size and speed, as it is scaled to fly off of motors commonly found on race quads. Coupled with the FT Goblinís ability to carry a wide range of batteries, it can be set up as a light, sporty flier or as a long range FPV platform.

In fitting with the Goblin tradition, it has been designed with FPV in mind; each kit includes an optional carbon fiber camera mount that can fit all standard sizes of FPV cameras. The FT Goblin offers the great flying experience of the original STRIX Goblin in an approachable package, sure to suit the needs of both sport fliers and FPV enthusiasts alike.

Flite Test Goblin Electric Airplane Kit (760mm)
Great airplane!!! The build is very good. FT keeps improving the build quality and process. I would say this is an intermediate plane. Possibly a second plane if you have help, but likely a third plane. My setup: Emax 2205/2300kv, 3s 1300mah and a Runcam split. Initially I put the CG 5mm in front of the CG marks, it felt nose heavy and faster. I moved the cg to 5-10mm behind the cg marks, it flys very well now. It doesn't seem heavy in the air, and I am able to slow it down quite a bit. I can cruise just below half throttle for long flight times. I had a friend launch it for the first flight so I could get the trims set. That was key as I initially did not have enough up elevator reflex. Now that I have a good trim the plane it is easy to launch. I launch at 3/4 throttle with an overhand throw and it climbs right out. It will descend near vertical with low throttle and full up elevator, as long as you have enough up elevator. I had to add more color as it was a little hard to see line of sight in all black. It is super fun to fly FPV and very response at higher throttle settings. Great airplane!!!

Flite Test Goblin Electric Airplane Kit (760mm)
This is a great flying little aircraft . . . once you get it dialed in. My COG is about 3/4 of an inch behind the leading edge. I obtained this from another person who had one. This build is not difficult if you have built other flitetest planes. It is NOT a beginner build. It is also not a beginner plane. You must fly this plane at all times. It can and will get away from you quickly. The stall characterists are great with the proper COG setup. I would rate this as an intermediate build and at least an intermediate flyer. Good luck on your experience.

Flite Test Goblin Electric Airplane Kit (760mm)
I hate to do it, but: "Ehh". The kit is an engineering feat, that is for sure. Well laid out and durable as all get out. But two big issues:
First, the new style video instruction is a little brief, especially for a slightly tricky build like this one.
Second and more important, it just does not fly as well as I'd like. Specifically, because of the enormous weight required up front for the CG to work out, the thing is a lawn dart. It needs a BOATLOAD of throttle to keep it moving, which means a very narrow (read: fast) flight envelope, despite it's small size.

Great model and loved the way it was put together. I am hoping that you guys do an A10 model as well I loved your youtube on the giant scale one.
