r30 boom, shortened drive shaft, 86t main gear, 9t pinion

only thing i had to make was a motor mount, i took off 1/8 inch from the stock mount then made two adapter plates. two new hole in the frame and two new holes in the motor mount, as the motor has too slide closer to the clutch bell. the only 550 blades i have are mavrikk flybared, two flights so far, it flys great, light and quick. what goes everyone think

Nice compact model with arguably one of the the best engines that OS has ever produced.

Nice job. What does it weigh?

just got tank 3 through it, light disk loading makes up for the power, need to tune the rpm and pitch a hair so the engine is perfect. its not fast but its quick and stable, autos good too.

i'll get a weight this week and hopefully some video (not till the weekend)

That is soo cool!!
Now you need to get a custom canopy made that says X30
looking forward to the flight video, what are your run times with the smaller engine?

Very, very cool.
Keep us posted.
I converted a titan 50 FBL to .37 with just engine and blade change.
It flies great and is a blast.
I've wanted to try the same thing with an X50 but the engine mount has held me back. Looks like you beat me to it. lol
Great job!

Indeed, Thunder Tiger is missing the boat here.

an up date, its back to x50 format, it was quick off center with this set up, the flight times wasn't as long as i expected but that cause i was always flying it fairly hard. i need to adjust the motor mount a hair was well, if you like your raptor 30 you'd like this,

Great idea. I did that with the 50SE and it is great. The OS .37 is an absolute GEM!
