what would I need to do, other than possibly a new motor/esc?

You will probably need: a new tail boom, new tail belt, new tail and main blades, new motor mount (maybe), new motor pinion, new tail belt pinion. I think these are the main differences. Someone else may come up with a few others.

The spacers for the rear landing bow on the MJ2 are longer than the front ones, too, which jacks up the rear end a little bit.

also, what's the difference between a Joker and a Joker II? and is there any kind of conversion kit to upgrade a Joker to a Joker II?

I am not sure about changing a Joker to a Joker 2. Maybe ask Joe Howard at Joker USA. Jokers weren't being sold anymore when I started flying helis.

The main shafts are fungible, for the most part. I fly the same solid shaft on both my J2 and my MJ2. I do have a longer main shaft in my parts drawer that was shipped by mistake from one of the suppliers. Maybe it is for the original Joker or Maxi Joker. It is hollow and 170 mm long (165 mm for the J2 and MJ2). If anyone has a use for it, let me know, and I will mail it--gratis.
