Yes, but depending on your muffler you may have to make a cutout where the front of the muffler is.

If you skip me I can't play!

Thanks
thanks for the reply. It looks like I will find me a V2 Canopy, trim the canopy if needed and order the V2 Mounting posts, and I will be set to go

its a perfect fit except for the canopy mounts, you can also leave the longer one in. I have a v1 with a v2 canopy with the longer mounts only diference its more of a pain to remove and install

The mounts don't matter. They widened the frames on the V2 hence the shorter standoffs. The long ones on a V1 work just fine.

Depends on the canopy, I got one from phantom hobby and it would not work with the V1 mounts. Had to change to the V2 and problem solved.

The good thing about the shorter ones is that they're less likely to break the frames where they mount. I drill the holes out and use a carbon fiber rod thats glued into the standoffs on each side. This way it breaks the carbon fiber rod instead of the frames.
