Default .20 size conversion motor mount?

Is there any product available like a drop-in electric conversion motor mount, that would enable an electric motor to be screwed to the same mount as a nitro motor?

I'm thinking about a strap/clamp-type mount(??) that would be built so the shaft of the e-motor would be on the same axis as the nitro motor. It would also have mounting flanges so that the holes would line up(or could be drilled to) with existing mount holes in the airplane.

I'm working on converting a .20 size plane and I'd like to have something like this so I could easily convert between nitro and e-power for demonstration and comparison purposes.

Any pointers on who might make such a thing would be quite welcome.

What you're looking for is a "clamshell mount."

I have mounted an electric motor to a glow mount and used a metal hose clamp to do it. It may be hack but it will work.
