The conversion is super simple, and when you get done you don't feel like you have some weird "conversion" machine, it feels and looks perfectly designed as an electric. I once had two G4 nitros and in a matter of an hour had one nitro and one electric :-)

Out of that parts list, I would recommend swapping out the PV1549 lower pinion bearing block for the PV1616 one that has two extra mounting screws (there are already the extra slotted holes in your frames). The PV1549 one is a little hard to level up correctly and if you get it wrong you can rub a groove in your motor output shaft.

This is a perfect upgrade for that issue.

The e720 is still one of the most spectacular flying machines you will ever get your hands on... kind of like the G4 Nitro is :-)

Just to add to what Adam mentioned above regarding the 8mm motor pinion block, there is also a 6mm version available:

Just be sure to order the correct size for your motor.

Good catch/point Ace. Yes the bearing ID needs to match your particular motor's shaft size. I have an 8mm shaft on my e720 but most would have a 6mm.

Thanks Adam, what motor are you using with an 8mm shaft? I'm using a Kontronik Pyro 700-45L with 6mm shaft.

I am using the Scorpion 4530-540kv LE edition with the bigger shaft in it.
