Yea when I talked to Hinson last week he said it might be in the works but not until next year.
He still has blue and yellow ones in stock I believe. I got most of the stuff ready for mine. Just trying to figure out what prop and ESC size. for my motor on both 4 and 5s

Im going to throw in my $.02 on this as I am just waiting on new standoffs for my motor before I can finish my conversion.

The Outlaw I received had holes pre-drilled for the Glow motor with blind nuts installed already. The standard X mount for a Brushless Outrunner will not be able to use these holes. In order to remove the blind nuts you need to heat them up to weaken the glue(epoxy) that keeps them tight. I found a tip for my soldering iron that would fit in the threaded section of the nuts, cranked up the heat all the way and lightly pressed the iron into the nut pushing it back into the airframe, as the nut heats up the adhesive weakens and the nuts fall back into the airframe where you can safely remove them(THEY WILL BE HOT) after they cool


As for mounting the new motor I drilled out the original mounting holes with a 13/64th bit and cut a 3/16ths oak dowel into 3/16ths long sections and inserted them into the holes and set them with 30min Epoxy. While the epoxy was curing I took a 2" section of a 3/8ths dowel and drilled a 13/64ths hole as close to the center as I could with a drill press. The shaft of the Torque 2814T/820 is 13/64". Insert the dowel into the remaining hole in the firewall, attach the X mount to the motor and stick the motor shaft protruding through the back into the hole in the dowel. This ensures that the new locations keep the motor centered on the firewall. Mark the locations for the new blind nut locations, drill them out and re install the blind nuts


Unfortunately the shutter on my phone camera locked shut after taking this picture so I dont have any other Pics. Im taking it to get looked at tomorrow, If it gets fixed ill take more pics and post them in case anyone is confused

Here is a small Video I took at eWeek of Jewett and his eOutlaw. Sorry its sideways, not sure how to rotate it.

New Phone should be in hand tomorrow by noon!!! I have finished my Conversion less the new servo horns due in Saturday and the cheek cowl since no store in town has 3/4" triangle stock (anyone have a 5" scrap they want to send me?)

Regarding the CG. The book says "The CG range for the Outlaw is 11.75 inches to 12.25 inches measured forward from
the rear edge of the center fixed portion of the trailing edge of the wing." Say THAT 5x Fast

Is "the rear edge of the center fixed portion of the trailing edge of wing " the trailing edge closest to the rudder? is there a CG measurement from the firewall back?

Once i get the new phone in had ill take some more pics and upload them here.

I'm afraid this build will require extensive testing before I can feel comfortable giving it the final OK.

HA!
Back when I was building engines, carbs and such... I used to feel the same way whenever a Corvette, Camaro or Mustang was subjected to my wrenching

I mean... it's a liability, right? You should probably give it a very thorough test drive flight.
... or three.

Can you guys get a video?

Does it still require the special bearing mount and longer shaft that I saw somebody do in some video a year or two ago? Or are there simplier ways to do a fast electric conversion?

No special bearing mount that I am aware of. I certainly didn't use anything like that, just standoffs and a brushless motor.
I will post a few pictures this afternoon.

IF the wind goes away this week I am ready to Maiden!!!!!

Fred at HPP got some good footage of Chris Jewett flying his at eWeek, but you'll need a Flight Pass membership to see it.

You can use the setup from one of the 48" planes and get 80-90mph out of it, I think I heard. (on 4s) Or bump it up to 5s and get 100+mph out of it.
The rear bearing was part of a mod for a particular Scorpion motor I think... for a very fast setup.

Looked plenty fast to me on the 5s setup Jewett was running, but I'm not into any rc model going much faster than 100mph
(At least right now. Just haven't been bitten with the extreme speed bug yet, I guess. Not sure my eyes or nerves are up for anything much faster anyhow)
