I've ordered both versions from BH and they've been V2's, however, neither of them will have the newer PZV2 retracts or the newer style beefier struts, You'll have to order them seperatley from Raymond at RC-Castel and do the mod to install them your self. Then you'll have pretty much the latest and greatest. That's what I've done with mine. BH is having issues for some reason? sending out the PZV2 retracts as replacements...I'm still waiting for mine from them?

I only see one set of struts for the 51 on Raymond's site, are they the newer beefier struts?

Anyone know?

Thanks in advance

You are correct. You need to attach a comment on the remarks section that you want the New and improved struts. I would also recomend you follow that up with a direct email to Raymond directly. That is what I did, and mine should be here in a few days to confirm.

I had to glue it in place...The trunnion gave out on me. FMS is sending me a new one...It's one of the problem areas left on the V2...I unplugged the servo and glued it in place so I still had yaw authority but it can only be locked in the down position.
