Default glow to electric conversion

I have an Aviomodelli Ariane 5 Motor Glider ([link=http://store.yahoo.com/internet-rc/ar5motglidby.html]Internet RC[/link]), 114” wing span and weight of about 6.5 lbs which I would like to convert to electric power. The recommended glow engine is a .25 to .36 2 stroke engine. I have been looking at the AXI motors ([link=http://www.hobbylobby.com]Hobby Lobby[/link]) but cannot figure out which model would be the appropriate one for this type/size/weight airplane. Could you please recommend an equivalent electric motor? Also, could you please recommend a speed controller and the smallest battery configuration (will prefer to stay with NiCds for now) which will adequately power the engine?
