Default Elec conversion for Shuttle 30 - need parts!

I am going to convert my Shuttle to electric power. Can't fly gas here anymore (too noisy - neighbors complain).

Does anyone know of a motor mount available that will replace the gas engine and allow an electric to be mounted?

Thanks

Terry

Try this on for size! It's a drop fit and it still uses the clutch.

That is fantastic!

Thanks a lot.

Now, what would you recommend for a motor?

I cannot afford a real Hacker / Axi, etc, (so if you know of something from United Hobbies, or a generic) that would work I would really appreciate it.
