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!

Lol. I know. I told the wife I was going to spend around $300 bucks to convert a $300 dollar heli. Not worth it, but wanted to try it out!

Look through this thread - https://rc.runryder.com/t591620p1/

Essentially you need a motor mount (trex 600) and a $5.00 prop adapter then the ESC/Motor/Batteries. Heli143 runs through it in the first page. The rest of the thread is a couple different ways to do it and discussion.

I'm working on a different way that I'll be posting in the conversion section once all the parts arrive.

That seems to be the only way so far. I also saw a thread that someone sent me a link that shows the motor being mounted on top of the frame where the gyro would normally mount.

I would really like avoiding frame modification, but it is looking more and more like that will not be possible.

I guess the good news is frames are pretty cheap. I picked up a spare to use for measurements and dry-fitting things for ~$28 shipped on Amazon, might be able to find them cheaper if you look around a bit.

Good luck.
