not much. the v2 has thrust bearings on the blade grips. the gyro mount is on the bottom instead of the top. frame is slightly stronger. the included esc, motor, lipo is upgraded from v1. and obviously the price.

also the feather shaft is 1mm thicker and shouldered at each end on the V2.
After 3 minor to moderate crashes I have yet to bend the feather shaft on my V2 while with the V1 shafts will bend if you look at them too hard.

The 4mm feathering shaft would be nice. I guess I would need to replace the entire head to be able to use the 4mm shaft and thrust bearings, right?

i think all you'd need to replace would be the head block and blade grips. however, the V2 aluminum parts are also a darker blue than the V1. but if your not worried about looks, it would be worth it.

as far as the feathering shafts durability, it really depends on how you crash. my first crash, i was inverted and it survived. but the second crash, i was right side up and it bent the hell out of it, go figure. i will agree that is a very strong shaft though. if i were running with the V1 shaft, i could've sneezed and bent it.

also, if im not mistaken, the V2 overall longer than the V1 too. but that could just be canopy size, im not sure.

What would you spend to convert from v1 to v2. or can it even be done.

it can absolutely be done. but why?

do you have the trex450se? there really isnt much to upgrade from v1 to v2. the boom block from the v2 is better since you can mount the gyro on the bottom instead of top for added protection. the motor on the v2 is more powerful and esc is better. save your money and invest on a bigger heli. IMO
