According to Bert himself:

https://rc.runryder.com/helicopter/t668499p3/

"Wow, I can't believe the amount of speculation, I guess this is good for SAB as it creates more brand recognition, but don't you guys have anything else to do?

Just need to set the record straight here, my first prototype crashed due to a chafed wired on the tail servo, the prototype model had a very sharp boom edge and I didn't take the time to sand it down or protect it because I was in a hurry to start testing the machine, it was a complete oversight on my part. There was no mechanical failure, it was an issue with the flybarless control system going into failsafe due to extreme noise.

Anyone that has any experience flying helis will see that the helicopter continued on its last position until it hit the ground, nothing mechanical failed.

The only parts that got damaged were the landing gear, landing gear support, main shaft, tail hub, blades, blade grip pitch links, that's it! This proved this helicopter to be stronger than some people think.

As for SAB not handing out Goblins to everyone of their team members, this is simply, SAB is a small operation, they don't have the budget I don't think to hand out Goblins to everyone, only a select few have been fortunate enough to be part of the test program prior to release. The helicopter is 99% complete as far as I've been told, they're just running behind due to a last minute change to the way the gears are manufactured.

Bert"

Clarification

I only posted the videos because it was an awesome flight and an awesome crash. And everyone loves to see both.

As far as the Goblin goes, this Heli hit the ground as hard as any I have seen. And the second video shows how well it survived. My buddy and I were looking it over a few hours earlier and wondering about the tail boom. Now I know that thing is pretty tough.

Not to mention it looks bad ass.

Great flying Bert and an awesome event. Keep up the great work.
