Ok, to start off, I am about 5-8 years behind. I have 2 raptor 50v2's that I would like to convert to electric. Let me also say, that I would like to convert the raptor to electric, but keep the existing clutch. I do not want to do a direct drive conversion.

I looked online and saw that about 5-6 years ago there where several companies that sold a kit that would use the existing mounting holes to mount the electric motor. I also see that there are ways to just drill the frame and use a trex 600 mount to fit inside the frame. I would prefer not drilling the frame. I would like a straight up bolt and go conversion mount that uses the existing frame holes.

Does anyone have one of these? Does anyone still make these?

Let me know what you have or who you recommend. Thanks!

I use the mounts that Gary Wright used to sell through TPPacks.
He also used to carry the ccpm conversion (I have two of these as well).
I think there is a Trex motor mount that will fit between the frames and screw in from the sides, but I don't remember which one it is.
Some guys have mounted the motor in the back area originally meant for the gyro sensor.

Here's a link to one of mine.

If you skip me I can't play!

Very nice conversion. That is one of the nicest ones I've seen. It looks like TPPacks is all about multirotors now. The more and more I look, the more and more it looks like I will need to drill into the frame.
