Question Help with a nitro 50 to 550/620 conversion

Hi all,

I love my Nitro Titan but I wanted to try electric and was convinced by other
fliers that the Trex was better then a Raptor. So I purchased a Trex 600.

Now that I have flown both I don't see that much of a difference in the way
they fly. As a matter of fact I like the Raptors robust frame much better
then the fragile frame of the Trex.

Anyway I have an extra Titan 50 that I was going to sell but people seem to
be giving them away at such low prices that I decided to keep it and convert it
to electric.

This is the list of parts I have come up with:

Pinion gear - depends on motor I choose
PV0544 111T Main Gear E620 Price : $?.??
PV0552 Linkage Rod E620 Price : $6.99
PV0554 Elevator Arm Lever E620 Price : $4.12
PV0555 Elevator A-Arm E620 Price : $2.69
PV0556 Aileron Lever E620 Price : $8.55
PV0557 Servo Tray E620 Price : $8.55
PV0558 Main Frame E620 Price : $13.99
PV0559 AL Lower Frame E620 Price : $22.59
PV0561 Bottom Frame E620 Price : $4.89
PV0562 Batt RR Bracket E620 Price : $2.39
PV0574 Motor Mount E620 Price: $14.29
----------------
Total $89.05 + the main gear

Does that look right to you? Can I eliminate anything
on the list that I already have in the Titan kit.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,
You'll also need pv0563 skid adapter, but other than your list is the same as the one I came up with.

Thank you,

I ordered the parts this morning before I saw your message
but I will pick those up next time I order some parts.

I will be using a123's cells and plan on making lower frame
spacers once I get the parts in hand.

Quick update....

I have the heli together and the list I posted was correct except
for the landing mounting parts pointed out above. I ended up
making a set from aluminum just to save time.

Another discovery is that a 12s a123 pack will fit in between the
existing frames without shims.

I will post pictures later.
