Mini titan e325s conversion

I'm a little new to thundertiger heli's. My question is does the e360 conversion kit with motor and esc work on the e325s. If not what are my options to make it work if it will at all. Thanks

Welcome! The 325S runs a belted tail vs the 360 Torque Tube conversion kit soÖ No-Go! It can be converted but the basic parts are discontinued and can now only be had in conversion kit form which adds extra expense and unnecessary parts.

What motor and esc are you referring to? I didnít notice these items as being part of the conversion kit.

Anyway, here are the required kits/bits 325S > 360TT.

I might add there is a much simpler/cheaper way to extend a 325S to 360 status without converting to Torque Tube which only involves purchasing a longer boom/belt/rudder control rod. Of course, if one is doing a full blown 360 6S type makeover it would also require capable motor; esc; blades; lipoÖ

There is also another route to 360 via the 325 V2 TT kit which would then require purchasing the same Torque Tube conversion mentioned above.

Last but not least, the ARF E360

The kit I was looking at was the e360 conversion kit complete.

So I would have to convert it to torque tube then I could use the conversion kit?

Thanks for the link. Iím not familiar with Thunder Tiger motors/escís as Iíve always purchased my Heliís in kit form and added components of my choice. This conversion kit was directed towards the V2 FB belt. This model!

Yep! My suggestion with the >S< model would be to stretch it with a belt (sounding like a broken record eh ) I have both and see no real torque tube advantage, especially in this case, when attempting to convert the > S< model due to lack of individual, discontinued/backordered T Tube parts; particularly these ones, which are vitalÖ

Converting the >S< with the two links I supplied would save you some cash and leave you with the least amount of unusable parts; thus why I suggested the basic conversion kit vs the plus. The photos pretty well tell the tale on part countÖ

In any event we all have an opinion. In the end itís your choice. It is doableÖ regardless of which route is taken; Mini Tís are a fine Helicopter!
