Do the 500 and the 570 share the same air frame? Can a 500 be streched to run 570 blades? Are there other differances?

As far as I know, 500 stretch will let you swing 550mm.

Difference between 500 and 570 are
- frames
- boom
- canopy
- battery
- ESC tray
- secondary pulley
- one way gear / housing
- belts
- servo mounts
- tail pulley
- rudder servo mount
- pinion
- motor (4020 motor might be on the small side)
- to name a few

The 570 fixed a lot of issues the 500 had imo
Although the 500 stretched flies great

IMHO .... 500 was fine. No issues other than a bit heavy, unless you swing 523mm (stock will let you run it with no mods and you can use it with 84.5mm)

Its got 520 Zeal blades on it now. This is my first Goblin so I will have lots to learn about the brand.

What were the issues the 500 has?
And what do you need to strech it to a 570. Do the 570 boom and belt fit. Do you need to change the gear ratio?

Motor and tail ratio is different too

you can stretch 570 to swing 615mm with the Lynx stretch kit. But be warn, it will kill your 6S packs. Even 570 on 553mm is hard on 6S packs. Also, you would need full size servos to swing those 553mm or bigger blades.

Just stick to 500 with your 520mm and you will be set. Fly the 500 some more till you get familiar with it and than you can start experimenting. Just enjoy it sir

They are both great helis.....My biggest complaint on the 500 is the tail servo mount
Which is built into the frames molded plastic.....has a tendency to break each crash......I even had one side of the mount break with out a crash one time!
The 570 replaced this with a metal installed tail servo mount (Really not a big deal just be aware and check on preflight check)

Also make sure you have the upgraded main gear that has cnc plastic the early gears were molded and known for breaking which happened to me during flight

I will enjoy it for sure. Thanks for the input. Its ready to go as soon as the motor shows up.
The my other concern is with the carbon fiber canopy my antana placement is limited with a 7200bx. Has there been issues with this or am I over thinking it.
