Electric conversion
Any suggestions on what type of motor, esc, and battery use in a Shuttle conversion, other than Hirobo's own conversion kit

As far as I know that is the only one. Why not the Hirobo one? Get a motor mount, bolt the stock clutch/belt/pulley and starter parts together with the motor and go. You can also get the front tray parts to carry the 6s battery. Still no problems, only solutions, governed by MARSHALL AMPLIFICATION. I'm a HIROBO Fan, R U?

Im aware of the set they make but the price is high, maybe some other options would be out there as well

My guess is the motor is a big cost of the set. I can put together the rest for you if you like. I take it you have a motor? That bottom plate and reinforcement parts will be needed as the front tray is not really rigid enough. Still no problems, only solutions, governed by MARSHALL AMPLIFICATION. I'm a HIROBO Fan, R U?

Silent power from TMRF of Germany is another neat option. We will have those in stock soon as well.Still no problems, only solutions, governed by MARSHALL AMPLIFICATION. I'm a HIROBO Fan, R U?

the conversion i used was made in the usa
but i can't remember the make of it
on 6s and the right kv motor the e shuttle is a power house
even the os50 powered shuttle i made doesn't get anyway near the electric one on performance

Could have been Quick or Century. Both are gone now more than likely.

The TMRF one using the stock pinion would allow a nice 6s 4300 pack.

Yep, electric is instaneous torque and power. Maybe even too much power for the Shuttle. (nah, just throttle back a bit and save the reserve) LOL
