If this has been discussed before please excuse me. But what's been the cost of repairs for a Goblin minus main blades; with comparison towards other heli's I'm asking because I have a 570 & it seems pricey ex. The boom is around $60. Skids about $18 so if possible how about a list of the items that frequently break & cost or if it's pretty resilient

They are pretty sturdy but in any crash you look at the main shaft, feathering shaft, tail rotor shaft, belt, main gear, skids, main and tail blades. So go to the Goblin site, do YOUR research and put together YOUR crash kit.

Thanks for the reply in the past with my trex 550e I could count on the skids, front torque tube gears main gear, fly bar links, vertical fin, as items that needed to be replaced.

Main frames
Main frames seem to be rather delicate. I have had two crashes (dumb thumbs and mechanical) on my BT700 and in both cases no bent shafts (throttle hold in time), no bent booms. Just main frames, landing gear, canopy and blades.

When considering a Goblin, if there is a concern about the cost of crash parts then it's probably not for you ......certainly not for my blood !

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Thanks everyone. Lol its that bad Juan? I already have the kit I just didn't build upon it yet. And yeah I was considering stocking up on parts which I'm now getting into the habit of doing. Mainly because just about 3 hobby stores that I used to buy from have now closed & I purchase from helidirect & Mikado Usa I'm not feeling too comfortable
