there aren't any commercial conversions for that model. There is a conversion for the Stratus though.

none of the current proven engines will mount into those frames without massive frame changes.

I suppose you could get the parts to convert the upper Stratus frames and then get a Spark Stratus conversion but that won't be cost effective

to be honest it would be a lot less expensive and simpler to just buy a Spectra-G off the used market. With the Whiplash just around the corner they are selling for bargains these days.

Like Carey said..
I would think it would be easier to go with a Stratus conversion.. If I didn't have a Spectra. I'd definately be looking at that route. I've almost snagged one of the stratus airframes up for sale lately just cause it would be less than buying the parts to convert. I think it would make a nice gasser.

assuming its the later version extreme that uses the larger clutch and the updated lower bearing block (there were a couple of them) you can probably make this work.

the fury/spectra made more use of aluminum channels than the round frame spacers and the lengths were different between them. However you can just use the round frame spacers instead for any that won't fit.

You'll obviously need the upper frames, lower plate, frame ladders, ratio plates, battery tray and associated frame spacers. You'll probably need the rear frame channel that includes the t/r drive bearing, I don't know how different it was from the one in the fury. The stratus used a machined aluminum block, which you can use but you'll have to drill the frames to accept it.

also the tail boom supports use 4mm bolt holes instead of 3mm (as they would break from vibration) and the ends are oriented at 90 degrees to each other unlike on the fury. Since these are usually attached with adhesive you'd need to either replace one end, make some new ones or reposition them somehow on the frame

the good news is the entire tail boom assembly, and mainshaft/rotorhead is all the same.

So if you can get a complete spectra frame, and you have the right clutch assembly you can just swap the pinion/main gear and make it work

I did what you are talking about. I also had an extreme 90. I bought a used Stratus frame. I had the bigger clutch on the extreme. so I drilled new holes on the ratio plates and did some grinding on them to make them fit. I also bought the bottom plate, pinion, spectra G throttle servo mount and some different size bolts. I got a used hanson motor and mounted it with head facing fwd and the gas tank mounted in the front. Raja provided me with a Spectra cooling shroud. I had to drill new holes for the front A frame on the bottom plate and the throttle servo mount. I made carbon plates for the rear A frame.

I am having some issues with the motor. Dont know if the crank is bent or something cuz it vibs alot. But then again this is my first try at gasser and it is suppose to vib some. When I first tried to tune the motor I had the bolts from the filter shake off. Yea I didnt use locktite cuz of starting issues, but I didnt know it would vib that bad. So it is still a work in progress.

Sometimes there is more to it than meets the eye
I've done some conversions from a 99SE model to a gasser so that the end product is a fully blinged 1005 because 99SE (special edition) came with all the metal stuff upgraded all the way so to speak.

However, when you upgraded those models which were very similar, you needed to replace the upper frames as the nitro models used 78 to 80 thousands thickness where the gasser used 90 to 92 thousands frames. If you tried to fly with the thin frames then the model was not strong enough to withstand the gas motor and flexed and vibrated more. There was a reason thicker frames were used on gassers, and I found in my case on my gasser if I double up the bearing block mainshaft support area I can gain additional head speed without getting any ocsillations at high speeds, for example during a very fast autorotation dive the model would shake at the bottom when you wound it up in a flare for a couple of seconds until the headspeed dropped back down to normal ranges and then it smoothed right out.

Conversions can be done but they are not cost effective in my opinion. At the time when only the 1005 existed in that line, you could do it and get a blinged 1005SE that way. Now there are more options out there you could just sell what you have and buy something else that is gasser from the day it was born.

Do the Spectra and the Fury share the same clutch? They don't right? Because the Spectra has the larger clutch? That part alone is going to run you a pretty penny.

at least on the late versions, the clutch itself was the same

the lower bearing block isn't however and couldn't be used with the Stratus or Spectra without getting a new housing.
