Have you guys seen the new Electronic Conversion Kit soon to be released by KDE Direct? I've been looking to get into the 700E arena and this looks killer! I don't know if the owner uses RR, but he's got a thread on HF -

I snagged the pictures from the thread

thats nice but too much metal for me. I just got my 700 e conversion and it was only 400 bucks with scorpion motor and castle ESC to run on 12S and is all carbon fibre

I don't really like it either it seems they made a lot of metal parts but did not really put a lot of thought into the frames

I've seen some very nice electric 700's that have redesigned frames that are better suited for an electric.

I would suggest doing a lot of research before you buy it

personally I think the aluminum radio tray is a waste of $$ plus it seems like it would do nothing but add more weight

Hi,

Like balsapro says, do a search. I think if you want to use the original carbonframes then buy the ray (can`t rember his last name) kit.
The other two best options are the heli chris frame ( i think Esprit Models has those), its also usefull with the flybar head-or if you want lightweight and fbl-then the Suzi Hans from Austria (RR helii has them in stock) is the best option. Motor onn top and a large frame for the 10s-12s packs.

The above is bling but too heavy and one lipo in front and the other in back sucks if you have more than 1 set of 10s or 12s.

Regards Janis

I e-mailed KDE Direct and they stated the upgrades are lighter than the stock parts that are replaced! It will be interesting to see if this is true, but I hope it's true as I definitely want an Aluminum motor mount and the bottom bracket looks killer. The other upgrade kits I've seen are plastic, which flex and strip out when mounting these large motors.

That price does sound good! On the other hand, I don't truly care about price if the quality is there. Much like the Mikado VBAR I just purchased - it's definitely not the cheapest flybarless setup on the market, but it works the best IMHO. I've tried other, lower-cost versions and always felt like I got what I paid for. Just my $0.02.

pass....I agree with quicktoy-too much metal, they should have put more time into a better design....ill go with the ones that are already out that are carbon fiber instead of aluminum.

Looks nice but still has the motor in the under-belly...
needs to be up top with the battery under the main gear...
Just my opinion .....

yeah not an impressive design, i agree, they should have mounted the motor up top,so the whole bottom plate could be used for the batteries.
