To install a 50 in a Hawk Pro, you must have the engine mount, HW 3018, and it's better is you also replace the pinion gear with the 14 tooth pinion, HW3045A. I currently have a Hawk Pro flying like this and other changes that I would highly recommend is a set of Rotortech 570 mm blades, and the thrust bearing upgrade to the head.The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

The conversion that I'm aware of is for the older Hawk Sport, most of which is not needed with the new Hawk Pro.The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Richard,

With the stock tail boom, you can run 570 mm blades, and that is what I'm running on my 50 equipped Hawk. To run 600's, you will have to change to the Raven/Falcon tail boom and torque tube.

sewu,

Those are the only parts you will need, and of course, the engine and muffler.

One more thing to consider is the use of an OS 46.

They retail for about $110 at Tower. Best bang for your buck for sure!

genovia,

The CN2251 Side Frame Conversion Kit is not needed to convert the Hawk Pro to the 50 engine. That conversion kit was for the previous Hawks that had the plastic lower frame and servo frames, and if you did need that set, you would not also need the motor mount, HW3018A because that mount is included in the CN2251 conversion kit. Additionally, the torque tube, tail boom, and torque drive coupler, all Raven/Falcon parts, are only needed if you want to run the 600 mm blades.

adding up everything I need for upgrade to a 50 size bird, it will cost around $150 plus 50 size feathering shaft and thrust bearing for the head. or I am think sell my Raven 30 to buy Raven 50 ( Tower has in stock for 379.95 ).

SteveH what do you think ?

If you want the full blown 50 size machine, it is always a better deal to sell the 30 and buy a new 50, IMHO. The thread started, however, on what is needed to just convert to the 50 engine.The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.
