Hello

I purchased a Vario Bell 230 Mercy Air with Varios Novarossi 61,do you know if there is any conversion sets available so I can convert it to electric and use the original Bell and clutch with a electric motor?

Thanks

Yeah, ECSH has a kit, but it doesn't retain the clutch, it uses a pinion gear.

I have made a kit that bolts up to the engine brackets and uses a idler gear so you can use the clutch with the 20 22 or 24 tooth clutch and you don't do any cutting on the skyfox engine mounts, i'm using the Scorpion electric motor in my skyfox.I also have the Actro motor in anouther skyfox. You can see the conversion in my gallery, Did it my way....Jack

Not really. They are supplying a pinion for the electric motor, and replacing the main gear with the aluminum unit for the belt.

Here are 2 different motor mounts for this conversion (with clutch). I machined the first one, the second is Joe's at ECSH, but I moved the hole pattern and mounted it higher in the airframe so I could hang a clutch on it. You can order Joes kit and modify it to work like the one that I modified. You'll need to order a 65 tooth main gear to do this swap with a 20 tooth clutch. PM me if you decide to go this route and need more info.
