For the most part all the last of the V1 kits were updated to the latest and greatest updates except for the 4mm spendel and thrusted grips. The actual frame has been changed a bit between the V1 and V2 but all the bling is the same but for the shade of blue. I've heard a lot of complaints lately on the sloppy fit of the grip bearings lately on the V2 and the V1 grips work just fine unless you need to keep up with the Jones's

there is the same amount of aluminum in both versions and the main shaft is ecactly the same dimention in both V1 and V2. The V2 has a sloppy grip bearing fit that why the grips flap on the spendel.

how good are the motor's that come with the kit's? I see SE and GF kit's what's the difference? So is SE v1? or is it v1 as long as it don't have v2 behind it?

The V2 has more aluminum parts and resolves some issues with the V1. Swashplate, bigger mainshaft, blade grips & bearings, tail rotor control. 430XL motor instead of the 430L.... more efficient. General improvements all around! If you're going to buy a new one, buy the NEW ONE and you won't be spending the first $200 on upgrades!

Just 1 pair for the ESC & battery. Bullet connectors are included for the motor.
