Does anyone have a drawing or know of a person that I can obtain a electric motor mount from. I am interesting in converting a Hawk with the lower frame that is used inside a Funkey Airwolf body. I have it set up with an OS .37 but would rather go electric if possible before
flying. Any help would be appreciated. I could also use suggestions on the best motor/pinion and esc to use for scale flying.

If you can get your hands on one of the last issues of RotorWorld magazine (issue #18) you will find an article in it by a chap who has done that exact conversion. (I believe you will find adverts here on RR for the magazine.

Last year he had a two part article in the same magazine in which he did an e-conversion of the 50 size Century Bell 47GII.

They both looked to be rather simple conversions.

I'm working on the same project Pretty easy conversion once you get the motor mount. I found a cnc mount in the classifieds but i do have a drawing for a homemade mount that i got from Fred Bonk over on the zone. Send me a PM with your email and i'll send it to you.
Here is the homemade mount...

Here's mine...

Quite a few people have done this conversion and if you do a search for e-hawk on here and on rc-groups you'll find a few discussions and some photos. Also search for hawk in the e-conversion section.

As far as equipment goes you have a few options. Most are using a mega, tango or a hacker motor. I went a different route and am trying a Century 600+ motor. Whatever you go with you want a motor with about a 1000kv rating. The pinion will depend on how many cells you are planning on running. I'm using a 6S battery with a 20 tooth Joker pinion which will give me a headspeed of around 1750. The esc will again depend on the number of cells and your motor. You can go cheap like i did and use the Align esc and bec but you'll be limited to a 6S battery. If I decide to go with more cells i'll probably go with a Castle 45HV.

So far I've only hovered the e-hawk in the backyard but I'm liking it

Hope this helps...
Mike

The mount is easy to make. I am using the Tango 45-08 with a 20T Joker pinion and a Jazz 55-10-32 on TP 6S 4200 .. Makes a very nice realistic flying combo..

If in doubt lean it out . We don't do this to save money, we save money to do this

the mount for a Hawk is a piece of cake, u-shaped .032 aluminum bent to fit inside the frames dimension of 2.48". I used a NEU 1907/1.5y and a 26th Joker pinion, 6S2P battery, Phoenix 65 ESC. see attached.
