There is a rappy v1 for sale at my LHS I saw today, and it was on sale for 500 bucks. The guy only hovered it, and decided he didn't want it..it comes with fuel, starter, motor, heli, futaba 6 hs radio, servos, 401/9253 combo, and whatnot. I wanna know..what must you get to convert to a v2? besides the obvious body, I know the heads are a lil different..I wanna get athat white auto rotation gear too, but I dunno what all in the head I wanna get. I wanna get a metal head, as they have a stronger bushing to help prevent boomstrikes, and it also makes hovering easier..point is, what do I need to convert this thing? is 500 a good deal for it?

...just buy it and fly it. I had the V1 and have now the V2. You will not notice the difference while flying.

Swifty, the V1s do fine. When you crash out the V1 parts, consider replacing with V2s. When you break the V1 frames, then go V2 with the clutch/start shaft parts. The best part of the V2, IMO, is the canopy. I have V2 canopies on three of my V1 ships. As for the TC3, once you fly, the ground is boring.
