Well, if anyone is deciding to go glow on the Eflite T-34, beware that there is a lot of modification to do. I took mine apart last night to begin the conversion and after studying it very closely, I am reconsidering converting it.
First, the E motor attaches to a box under the cowl, along with the nose wheel . It sticks out a fair amount too. The internal structure of it is what is changing my mind. The floor under the canopy extends all the way into that box, and the sides of the battery try extend to the front and interlock with the sides of the box and floor. If I were to cut it, I would need to cut it at the exact same angles that it has now, then fit the firewall to whats left of the box, notching it to match originally, then epoxy it all back together. I would have to take off about 1 1/2" from it to make the cowl fit.
Downside, it would also move the nose gear back that same amount. I think doing that would make ground handling a pain.
I weighed the new motor, mount, tank, and RX battery and compared them to the e motor, ESC and battery pack, and they come out almost the same, the new motor slightly lighter.
Alternate way, which would give me the ability to convert it back to e power is to mount the motor on the existing box, and extend the cowl out 2 ".
What I don't know about that scenario is how much it would affect the location of the CG. The less structure I cut out, the less bracing I would need to add.
One other item I am concerned about, the mounting of the tank. In order for the tank center line to be at or below the carb, I would have to cut out the floor, and that would make the fuse weak in that area since again it is tied into the firewall.
I have some pictures I took, but cant find my iPhone cable at the moment to post them.
