Yes there is..
Allow me clarify the situation:
The blades that came installed on the new V911 pivoted and moved freely without any problems. The heli flew great right out of the box. It was the replacement blades
whose "female" mating part was too small... So the diameters are different. The ones that fit are 3mm wide, the replacements that came with the new V911 are 2.5mm wide.
The replacement blades that came with my "old" V911 are also 3mm, so they fit my "new" V911 without any problems whatsoever. So I don't think there were any changes to the rotor head between the old and the new style. At least not with mine.
I hope WL Toys didn't make a huge manufacturing screw up and are going to start shipping replacement blades whose "female" mating part is too small to fit their amazing helicopter.
I plan to order two sets of replacement blades from TMart today in hopes that they're the 3mm size blades. Keep them handy incase I break the main rotors again.
