Thinking about getting my first SAB - probably a 500. Just noticed the 500 has changed a bit since I last gave them a look. At least on heli direct, when searching for parts, I don't see any of these newer versions of parts - especially the canopies. Are parts pretty much interchangeable between the older G500 and the new Sport? If I buy an older Goblin from someone, is it fairly straight forward to update / 'upgrade' it later if I wish to do so?

Thanks.

Only upgrade need from the 1st kit was a main gear. The new sport version has new gear but as has less metal so if your a bling person then the 1st kits are the one you want. The sporty versions also have a different land gear Both fly over all the same. I don't own a 500 I ve got a 380 been looking at the 570 s

Basically the sport version was a nade to lower kit cost n make make ur easier for the masses to buy to have a choice. I like the plastic it lighter

Thank you -

So, I could swap out parts freely? I.e., buy an older one, then add some of the new plastic in place of the old metal?

If you want light n new get sport kit if you like metal n bling get the original kit not to sure on comparability from one to the next. I think they will retro fit. ?? I would go with the 570 sport n if you want to run smaller blades do that but leave your self the option to run 550s my preferred blade length
