As far as I can tell the changes are the 2 has 2 screw on lids under the canopy to keep water out, the 1 is totally open when you open the canopy. On the 1 the canopy is hinged, on the 2 it's held on with Velcro so if the canopy pops open on the 1 water goes right in but not so on the 2. The 1 takes a more standard looking (but smaller) battery, the 2 has a brick style. There are different part numbers for the motors but they are both listed as a 380 so I don't know what is different there. Either way they are a blast. They have decent speed (about 12 mph), turn on a dime, and self righting if you do happen to flip it. I have the 1 and love it. The only mod was to install a auto bailer in it.
