i have been selling my methanol birds and keeping my electric and gassers.

i cannot part with my lama, so i have been picking bell bloke and tanguy's brains for ideas. each has a converted lama, but used totally different methods.

it is my intent to use bell bloke's simple but effective method. however, i would be interested in hearing from anyone else who has done the conversion.

what method? what motor? what speed control? any issues?

thanks for your help.

just do it!

Hi there, I've just had a pm from a chap called 'Chris' if you look in his gallery you will see he has a purpose built Hacker mount for a Hirobo heli. I'm not sure if this will fit the Lama or where he got it but it's worth a look.

motor mount
bell bloke:

thanks for the heads up on chris' conversion. i have sent him a pm.

looks like custom stuff. time to buy that mill i have wanted for years. trouble is that it will probably take years to figure out how to use it.

my plan is to try your method and see what happens. i am trying to find a motor other than hacker. can't say why.

we are having a large heli fun fly in las vegas in ten days. i hope some vendors are there with pieces-parts. could end up with a flying bird shortly.

Hobbies and Helis has a conversion kit for about $69.00.
I am going to buy it and convert my Hirobo Hughes 300 to electric.
I think the one shown above (blue motor mount) is the conversion from HHI as theirs is blue aluminium also.

roy:

the conversion is h&h. it is for the shuttle and will not bolt into the lama.

have fun with yours. i will follow bell bloke's suggestion. squeeze play.

Sorry guys, didn't mean to create false hopes. Thought I was on a winner with that one.

Hey, Heli 143
I have a S300 that I want to covert to ELectric as well. Do you have the link for that conversion kit? I had a look but did not see it

Thanks

Jeff
