As some of you may be aware, I joined the Army in February. I have been out of Basic for a few months now (doing my AIT now) and I want to get back into flying.

Unfortunately, I am living on post, and it is not permitted to have fuel in the barracks. I really can't justify the expensive of a brand new electric rig, so i would like to investigate the possibility of converting my Rappy to e-power.

Does anyone make a motor mount for this? I can certainly work out the rest once i have a means of securely mounting an electric motor, but I have no means of fabricating my own mount.

Failing that, does anyone have any suggestions for a 30-size electric that I can get in kit format in the $200-$400 price range (obviously this would be airframe only at that price)

Thanks

Lots of Align 550s are being sold very cheap. Nothing against the r30, I had one and still have an r50 & r90.

For the price the 550s have been going for, I would make the switch instead of trying to convert the Raptor.
