This is the Red Lynx Heli Innovations Goblin 500/550 Stretch Tail Kit. If you spin 470-500mm blades on your SAB Goblin 500, you are able to compete with larger 550 class helis. Now imagine stepping up and leaving them in the dust with the new new Goblin 500 - 550 Stretch Tail Kit from Lynx Heli Innovations!
This increase in performance is made possible through decreased disk loading, one of the best upgrades to expand your flight envelope, performance capability and fun factor! With the Lynx Goblin 500 - 550 Stretch Tail Kit Lynx has extended the usable range of main rotor blade options up to 556mm with 80mm tail blades (or 550mm main and 86mm tail blades). Using longer main rotor blades (not included - pick your poison) increases the agility, speed and thrust potential and also adds a larger visual reference along with the floaty feeling, even when using 5000 mAh 6S batteries. In addition, swinging longer blades unlock unknown potential allowing you to try new maneuvers with added stability and response.
The Lynx Goblin 500 - 550 Stretch Tail Kit has been in testing with one of the Lynx German team pilots for more than a month, with over a hundred flights and even surviving a few crashes. All to ensure the design and materials are more than strong enough to meet the need. We carried over our past experience creating a unique vertical tail fin and tail case plate for the SAB Goblin 500 that allows for cleaner more efficient airflow-tail rotor thrust. This new extended tail case is similarly constructed with carbon fiber side and top plates and black, red or silver anodized aluminum cross bracing for the best combination of strength, rigidity and reduced weight.
Preinstalled flange bearings in the CF side plates cut assembly time to as little as 10 minutes. Our clever tail servo pushrod extension system allows you to stretch the standard pushrod without even removing or replacing it. We supply you with a high quality made in USA Gates timing belt, providing an added sense of security and avoiding a cheap poorly made belt. Lynx Ultra Dampeners are also included for head speed above 2000 rpm.
Itís like adding a turbo or supercharger kit to your car, if you continue the same routine your efficiency will increase. The Lynx Goblin 500 - 550 Stretch Tail Kit allows you to choose a lower rpm and increased efficiency translating into longer flights times; or unleashing the inner beast, unlocking hidden power for even more intense smack flying where maximum pop is required. Standard motor options and a 100A ESC can be used. For absolute performance we suggest a 4125 with 1100/1200 kv motor and a 120A ESC. We recommended you reduce the pitch travel by 1.5 degrees and work your way back up with more flight experience and confidence.
