Hi, is it possible to buy an electric motor mount suitable for a 30 size Hirobo Lama?

And also a motor conversion so you can fit the clutch to the motor?...or is it a question of having to make them yourself?

Any info or pictures of what others have used/done would be appreciated....Thanks

Waigo Hobby in hongkong makes such a kit. You could try contacting them to see if they have it in stock, but the mount is designed round their outrunner motor though, so if you are using other motors you might need to modify it.
The website I think is http://www.waigohobby.com. Ask for the shuttle electric conversion kit. Don't use their ESC though, it burns !
You can check my gallery for my electric Lama.

ps try search for this on their website.

Anyone have a link to a webshop that sells the Lama?

willerbee, what packs are you using and what flight times approx do you get with them? The ones you have on the pictures in your gallery looks pretty small? Also, are you running 550mm blades?

I am looking for a hirobo lama to convert, but would like to use the Z-Power Z30-800KV motor, 2 x 3S KongPower 3200mA cells and a Gaui 75A ESC. Likes them alot, easy to handle and a lovely soft start.

I am running 8s1p packs 2500 mah. The lama will handle 3700 mah packs.
4- 5 minutes with 2500 up to about 8 with 3700. I never fly till it goes soft though, so I usually fly 80 % of the charge only.
The Hirobo scale blades are only 475 mm long.
