I'm considering doing the same thing. I found a universal mount that I think will work. It lets you mount the motor either in back or in front on the mount. Here's the link for it. What battery are you using? I was wanting to go to a 3s lipo to give mine more power but they won't fit.

Yea any the lipo is really cheap too. And if you get that bp-18 motor from Unitedhobbies you can get the lipo there too. Here is the lipo's URL.

It's flying great, just needs a lot of runway to build up speed. I just got back from flying it in about a 4 - 5 mph breeze and it did fine. The wind didn't seem to affect it at all. A friend is going to loan me a .Rocket 400' motor to try. Hopefully that will boost the torque but I will need to go to a 6x3 prop because of the higher rpms.

The Rocket is a brushed motor. It's supposed to be a drop in for a 380 but with more power. Thanks for the link on the lipo. That lipo is only a 650 mAh. How long can you fly on that?

No that one is a 860mAh. I flys for a good amount of time.
