is it hard? if you know to solder then no.

how much is it? Depends on what you are buying. Motor price varies. You can do your own research on price for C05/M5, HP05, Spin 16.3k, spin 14.4k, spin 15.5k, HP06, HP08 or TA 915 plus the cost of an esc which varies from $15-20 stateside. If you get it flashed from services like astroid designs then it's $5 additional. The benefit of getting it flashed is that you don't need to buy a converter so it's cheaper.

in summary, you will spend about $50-$100 depending what you are buying. This is just for DIY job and not PNP.

PNP is a total different story.

is it worth it? Depends on you. For me, I have 3 brushless mcpxs

Here's a link to plug and play parts. I did the C05 and 120 tail upgrade. Hardest part is just gutting the stock MCPX frame so the motor has some clearance.

contact NCCraig, superjet or Dylan over at astroid designs just to name a few. Dylan is usually busy though.

NCCraig does a fine job. He also has the knowledge to help you pick the right brushless system. And Craig's fast as heck, he'd get you setup quick.

I went with the Hawk RC PNP C05 conversion kit as I didn't feel comfortable soldering on the 3 in 1 and I am SO happy with it.
Probably the DIY version gives you more versatility, but for starters, the PNP wins hands down..
