# MoYu AoLong v2 [new batch/plastic] Unboxing and First Impressions

#### AmazingCuber

MoYu has released a new version of the MoYu AoLong v2 with a new plastic. It isn't supposed to be as slow as the original v2 and fix the problems of the v1. I decided to make a first hands-on video about the cube. Enjoy!

Nice. What video editing program do you use?

Great video! How do you do some of those pan/tilt/turning effects? It almost looks like you use a dolly or slider rig.

Also, one tip: (and this is probably nitpicking) I noticed some things that sounded a little unnatural, I think it probably comes from writing your script like an expository paper, I think you should try to write your script as if you were talking, because the use of really strong adjectives seems a little strange and unnatural.

Man, your videos look just as good as Albert's (cyoubx), and his original Aolong v2 review was gorgeous.

For a German, his English is very good. I would also recommend talking a bit more informally, though. Dan's (CrazyBadCuber) videos all have that informal feel (I doubt Dan even writes scripts, anyway), so watching his videos and cyoubx's videos will help you get the idea of how you should write your scripts.

How "new" is this if shipping took a month?

You can identify new batch on the see through window in the box. The old ones (first batch V2 with slow plastic) has no see through window.

Yeah I've had mine several weeks - I watched the video because the title made me think there's another "new" batch, but I don't think so.

Thanks, this helped my confirm that my cube is the v2.

I'm also really curious as to how you stabilize your images.

I use a tripod with a fluid head. I also put toilet paper under my tripod to make it usable as a makeshift dolly.

I try to write my scripts that way, as I believe that adds to the professional feel. However, I will keep your advice in mind.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it that much!

It's an unboxing . . .

I use the method mentioned before in this post in addition to advanced software stabilization.

Thanks for all your support! I'm glad you enjoy the video and it is helpful for you!

Actually lightake has it, if the window on the box means the new plastics, which it seems like. Its on sale as well!

I got one from thecubicle with a window. It's super good.

Turns out the only one I had was the one with the new plastic (now I have two), so all of my defense of the v2 was just because I had one from the new batch.

Yes, it's not worth having corner twists with the v1, and since it costs $19, I wouldn't recommend getting it (as opposed to when it costed <$12).

And I am at a loss now but still the Aolong will be sufficient for sub 15 so will stick with it
