There is a lot you can do with it... I love mine on 12cell.. @4min flights... But on 6cell and lower head-speed, I am sure you will get better times. You can also put the Tri blade head on it, or get the KSE

Far as crashes.. I would think they would holdup well like any other...

Goodluck and enjoy!

570 on 6S
- 4:00 flight times (even with 5500mah)
- hard on packs

570 on 12S
- best way to gain flight times vs higher capacity on 6S
- ESC, Motor and batteries will be cooler b/c of higher efficency
- unboggable power
- any motor would work but i suggest x nova, kde or pyro respectively

Goblin 500 already has:
- awesome flight characteristics
- tail authority
- excellent visibility for pirouetting maneuvers

The 570 kicks it up a few notches. if you don't mind loading 12S packs and 1/2 the number of flights over single pack configurations.

e.g. based on having six 6S packs:
- it would yield six 6S flights vs three 12S flights

Incident wise, it's hard to say since they vary. So if we were take into consideration for the exact same incident:
- goblin cost more than mikado, despite mikado parts cost more but there are fewer mikado parts
- Trex 550 would cost less although there is more parts

As far my experience with Goblin 500 (since it's very similar to 570), Goblins don't crash well (for me).

15' up on a stationary flip ....inverted to upright (esc shut off), almost a re-kit.
- aluminum is the softer 6061-T6 variety
- canopy & boom cost more compared to other brands
- CF has "G-10 Fillings"
- has a high disc load on 500mm, although 523mm does help

Goblins flies and looks awesome, part's fitment & finish is superb. As long you are OK with the short comings, you will enjoy the Goblin 570.

I must add crashing any goblin Heli is pretty costly when you just factor in the canopy, boom and blades over $200.. let alone all the other parts that need replacing ex. Main shaft, spindle, bearings. I enjoy building Goblins more then flying them

exactly .... but here is the Million Dollar question;

"Do I spend just a little bit more and you are able to pick up an airframe on the forums?"

it's the age old dilemma, spend more to save?!?!. LOL

building them is a lot of fun. I LOVE my 380. My 570 is built, waiting for me to correct a mystery electronics issue, but I'm sure I'll be happy with that as well. Haven't crashed one yet, but I know from others they're pricier to repair.

Yes I always browse the forums hoping to find a nice airframe I can use for parts when I experience a mishap shall I call it..I even consider a new kit at times.. my advice is to try hard not to crash

My 12s 570 has been my go-to heli for over a year. Started as 2 blade and switched to 3. The 3 blade head makes it fly like a larger size. I have had one crash and it was a re-kit because I came down inverted at high speed with no control. I have also blown out the skids a few times with hard autos.

Pros:
-Great power to weight ratio on 12S
-Batteries, ESC, and Xnova motor don't get very warm after aggressive flights
-Easier to transport than my 700
-Easy to work on

Cons:
-Canopy not very easy to install with 12S batteries
-Wear out the tail dampeners often with 105mm blades
-Bolt in intermediate pinion needs to be changed periodically or it will fail

I would like to point out that the only option for batteries are not 6 or 12S.

You could go with a 8s setup or 10s setup. You just need to recalculate the kv for the motor and the gearing.

And yes, it cost a few bucks to crash, But long time ago when I started to fly, there was no painted canopy's. If you crashed, you had 10 hours of rebuilding and 10 hours of painting (and sanding is very boooring). :-)
