Nice! As for your questions, if its the same dimensions as an os50sx, then yeah theres no reason it wouldn't fit.
I machined my self an engine mount for my os50, I did that because I couldn't find one in my area. They only cost 16$ so you would be better off buying one vs getting somebody to machine you one.

i thinking of not trying, if you notice the collar that you remove to add raptor fan, on this motor i has a ignition magnet, so it has to stay, now???? can you get the fan on with the collar there.....the guy selling says its a match, but i dont think it any good for heli, because of that collar, thats why i think, even if you could get it to work, you need a modded engine mount, and also 1 of those heatsinks you can add to the head to get more cooling to the head...so thats another CNC mod, so the motor is about 200.00 and then a few mods made maybe another 50.00....not good for me in these economic times, but if someone else trys it and it wooks.....i would do it in a heart beat...and it would save on nitro cost...

"0.8hp" ..... my OS50 hyper is rated at 1.9hp! (the 56's are around 2.2-2.3hp) It sounds a little light in the loafer's to me.

I'm not sure, I'm kinda new but maybe gassers run cooler. (temp-wise that is.)
