I have an I1 v1. Just bought an X5. Is the v2 motor with the upgrade? Certainly not at $250 a motor. But what at $50 a motor? Thanks.

I had the v1 pro with the x5 and managed to get a i1 v2.0 with the z3, I put the x5 camera on it and didn’t notice much difference but they are bigger motors and the later ones so come with the better prop locks,

motors are the same sizes externally and the prop mounts can be swapped between the two. ive had both as well

I think he means bigger as in KV rating rather than physical size which are both 3510's
The jump from KV350 to 420 just isn't worth the effort as the perceived increase is more marketing than actual performance.
The V2's simply swing faster for a given voltage (which is the same) and the prop size and chord are identical on both machines.

i would do the upgrade if the old motors have a lot of fly time just because your removing them anyways
