    What size did you purchase?

    The .40 and the larger .60 size both have cowls available for electric installations.

    The removable canopies also make them well suited to electrification.

    Motor/ESC and PROP suggestions are provided in the documentation.
    There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT ELECTRIC POWERED FLIGHT
    http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_7100376/tm.htm

    This e-book will help you if you want to broaden your knowledge of electric.

    Using a motor selection resource can be helpful. The Electrifly system works well. I have had good experience with the Rimfire motors.

    You say you are interested in seeing other set-ups. Do you have a set-up already or are you looking for advice?

    Helps to provide links to the planes so we know exactly which plane you have.

    The calculator will let you vary the prop size, flight character, weight and other parameters. I don't know your plane so I can't run an example for you but they calculator is easy to use. Take a look.

    Even if you don't want to use Ammo or Rimfire motors you can get specs that can be applied to other brands.
