Raptor E Conversion CAD DRAWINGS
I have a lot of Raptors and would like to change them from Nitro to Electric power plant.

Anyone have a CAD drawing for what it takes to make the conversion?

This E-conversion will be going in several Raptor scale fuselage.

If not possible to do the conversion does anyone know what other mechanics will fit a raptor scale fuslage?

Your idea is interesting but I think it needs a lot of work.

I also have a Raptor90SE but never think of converting into scale coz I can’t do aerobatics anymore. But your idea sounds interesting. Maybe other members can contribute some ideas and might provide you what you’ll be needing.

There are two options...

1. Clutch system remain onboard.

You need to install a proper motor base at lower. All clutch shoe, fan, bell, pinion, remain onboard.
Electric motor need to have special threaded shaft like glow motor.
(easy way)

2. Get rid of clutch shoe, bell, pinion, etc.

Electric motor with proper pinion should be installed upper. Need to drill frames to install the motor base.
(the hard way)

The easy way...

Motor... Something like this...

The motor base, you need some assembly... Much easier.

Sorry about my "CAD" drawing...

The easy motor base is something like this...

This motor base is installed on same position as glow motor and probably need to fix with bolts on the other end on both frames.

Im a fan of having a clutch system in a electric conversion scale machine. The electric motor spools up first without blades turning and it almost sounds like a turbine engine start.Still buyin' and flyin' then crashing and cryin'

Thanks for ALL the replies .... In particular the Great Planes Adapter GPMG0855 for a 5mm shaft as posted by

All I need to acquire is the type of motor, ESC, and Battery part numbers.

Then I'll work on designing the motor mount.
