Default Super Goblin completed

Over the past couple weeks there were enough warm and wind-free times to get my Super Goblin painted.

This is my first Goblin. I decided to do something different, so main tube is BT60, transitioning to BT55 and a NOS balsa Goblin nose cone (BNC-55AO). Power from dual, canted 18mm engines. Decals are Cricut vinyl.

That's pretty neat, Lee! Did you cut the markings yourself, or are they from the market?

Sounds very UNDERPOWERED seeing as the original short BT-55 version had 24mm power.
At least a 3x18mm should have been a minimum. A single 29mm would have been better.

Question

Lee is that a Fliskits made canted motor mount? I think it would launch well.

Iím hoping to do an upscale Goblin Cobra (BT80 to BT70), 18mm 3-cluster motor mount.

John,

I converted a PDF of the Goblin decals (the page with decals and fin pattern on it) to a JPG, then pulled into Cricut Design Space. The bats on payload, and the skinny band, are BT-55 size. I enlarged all the decals on main tube to fit BT-60.

The Cricut uses the same type vinyl as Stickershock uses, with transfer tape to apply.

Three canted motors donít fit with four fins!

This thing is moderately larger than a regular Goblin, so 29mm would be absurdly overpowered.

Its actually similar in size to a Dueces Wild, which uses the same dual, canted 18mm mounts.

So, wanna reconsider your ideas on power?

Dan, yes, its the canted-motor kit from Fliskits.
