I been reluctant to fly part of which is the ability to get fuel. Anyways need some help.

I sent thse guys an e-mail this morning early, no awser yet. http://www.tppacks.com, To see about what they have to convert a Raptor 50 Tian to Electric. Acording to RCG thread on this they have what I'll need. And I need to know what I want need from my nitro stuff so I can sell it. Everything is like new basicly, only 10 hovers to start the break-in. Desided to go back to electric. Fuel Sucks.
I just need to know what to keep, like my pinion right?
And sell my motor, mount, and clutch, clutch bell, fan.
Wander if I 'll need the starting shaft? Or the Hex thing on top?
I'll have a whole lot of great stuff to put in the classifieds. That will get me close to what I'll need.
Can anyone point me to a good BEC to keep in mind?
And I relize this will be an over the winter project, and in the mean Tim I'm going to get a Little Honey Bee or something to buzz around in.

Also I saw a thread here where someone did their own conversion, and want maybe some imput on that, they used a Align motor mount from a 600E, and used some other motor, and esc of their chooseing.

I think TPPacks.com use either the Z-Power Z50A-600 Outrunner 565KV, or the 780Kv, and a Phoenix HV-45 High Voltage Controller, or the 85A version. Plus they provide the mounting equipment, seems like all for under $300.00
Apreciate some help.
Thanks

O' thats the box conversion kit, waaaaayyyy to expensive.
It apears with the basic tppacks.com conversion my Pinion does not fit into the top bearing block, like on maybe the raptor 50v1, or v2.

Hmmmm

I may have to mod the frame and install an Align 600E motor mount, or something.

It’s so cheap to just get the Raptor E620 parts and convert it yourself that as far as I know all those other kits are no longer available.

Just download the E550/E620 manual from Ace RC and get the stock parts to due the conversion. You will have a stock EP helicopter that flies great and is optimized for EP flight. If you crash it’s easy to get parts. I picket up a cheap used Raptor a couple of years and did the conversion. It’s one of my favorite helicopters.

I did not find the pinion, or the main gear on heliproz. O.K now the pinion, will that be for the E620 kit, or specific to the HK-4025-740, but I presume the Main gear is the one that comes with the E620 kit?

Thanks

The E550/E620 main gear is a nice heavy-duty gear with 111 teeth.

For pinion gears I like Century long pinions. They run a little truer and smoother than the TT pinions. They are CNMG509L through CNMG511L for 9, 10, and 11t pinions.

Century has both 5mm and 6mm pinions so be sure and order the correct one. The Scorpion HK4025 series comes with a 5mm pinion.

Thanks so much, after going thru that list of parts it's really not that expensive to convert a Raptor 50 Titian right to a Raptor E620. Thats the only way to go.
