Do a search on youtube for Raptor 50 electric conversions and it will bring up some vids of some conversions using a rimfire 42-60-800. They look like they get the job done, was thinking about trying one myself.

I am getting ready to do an eLama (.30 Hirobo) conversion with the Rimfire .46.

I just completed a eShuttle conversion with a Hacker C50-19XL with a CC ICE 75 esc. Power output numbers from the controller data download shows just under 500 watts in the hover. The Hacker is a horse and probably way overkill for this application, but it is a sweet runner.

The .46 Rimfire is rated at 1110 watts continuous. Though the Lama will be heavier, I'm feeling fairly confident it should fly fine. I've seen comments re:the Rimfire as that they really aren't up to their stated ratings, but I thought it would worth a try. Plus, you can't beat the price. If it won't do the job there's always other options.

Let us know what you end up with.
