So far I love my v2 over v1 as a stock bird.

Your turns are different then. The bad ones get a perfect 90-degree turn. Happens very fast and perfectly. I've tried every setup and can't get rid of it. However, v2's are coming with 1.5 boards now whereas the first v2s were 1.3 boards. Hopefully they fixed that problem.

I flew a v2 for the first time yesterday and it seemed to have a lot more power than my v1. Is that due to the 3n1 or jlmainly because I have worn down my motor ?

I don't know if you figured it out yet. However, the magic mystical black box is the Invensense, ISZ650, (http://invensense.com/mems/gyro/isz650.html) it's an analog 2-axis gyroscope, on the V2 board this chip is replaced by the ITG 3200, (http://invensense.com/mems/gyro/itg3200.html) 3-axis digital gyroscope. This introduce the capability of full 3d sensing, higher noise performance and advanced feature integrated within the IC registers, like sensitivity, resolution, filters, interrupts, and sleep/standby functionality. The two other chip are an Atmel microcontroller and the spektrum receiver chip, usually the chips from Cypress.

If you ever wonder what the strange black boxes on the board are, try to read all the small letters on the component and google it! Start from the top, word by word. Usually you'll find complete datasheets (.pdf files) of the component describing its functionality in depth.

I learned on the V2 swapped to a V1 board this weekend before i go brushless and I like the stability of the V1 board, It seems so much smoother reacting to control inputs.

Reviving an old thread- my chips are scratched out so i can't see the markings.
It's like that with three different mcpx boards and mqx board.
Does hh not want people to know what they use?
