I don't believe you'll find a conversion for this model. The closest thing is the XCell Spectra, but most of the chassis is different. Of course the fan and shroud are different as well.

certainly the entire rotor head and tail boom can be used but depending on the exact model you have, the clutch, pinion and main gear would need to be replaced as well.

I believe a conversion would be cost prohibitive

I think it would cost at least $400 to buy the parts necessary to make a Fury/Tempest into a Spectra, but if you have a really nice Fury/Tempest and you really want it to run on gas, it might be worth it. The bottom plate alone is $100. You would also need both side frames.

Thanks Justin, but if the cost was not a problem, what are the parts that I would need? The short list that I can think of would be
LOWER SIDE FRAMES
BOTTOM PLATE
FRONT AND REAR VERTICAL RAILS

Is there any thing else?.....

If you look at the pictures in this file, you can see the differences between the Fury and the Spectra:

I guess you just need to order the parts that you don't already have.
