Best way of converting stick mount

I'm just wondering how everyone goes about converting a stick mount into a brushless outrunner with direct drive. I have a GWS Corsair and a Guanli ME-109. I ended up stuffing around and modifying GWS plastic mounts to get them to fit. While its not a hard thing to do i am wondering if there is a better way. Are there good quality gearboxes available so that it is easy to maintain everything in the stock location? How have others gone about it?

EDIT: I did do a search on this and found most people just hack at regular stick mounts then fit their desired outrunner. I just wondered if there was better way especially if you want a high power set-up in say a GWS P-51 or something like that.

Hi Supercub,

If you use Emax CF outrunner motor, there is a adaptor look like heat sink which can be mounted into the stick

That looks great. I also found this E-flite part.

Anyone used this before? Does it only fit Eflite motors?

E Flite (Horizon Hobby) offers a stick motor mount (part # EFLM1915) that you may want to consider.
