Default New to electric so I need some help....

Hi all, I have flown glow for many years but recently am returning to rc flight. My question is what kind of setup I should use in a 60 size Sig Mayhem? I want this airplane to have extra power and be light as possible. The specs on the airplane are as follows:

Wingspan: 72- 1/8 in 1832 mm
Wing Area: 1167 in² 75.3 dm²
Fuse Length: 59 in 1500 mm
Flying Weight: 7 - 8 lbs 3175 - 3630 g
Engine Required: .72-.91in³ (11.8 - 15 cm³)
2-Stroke Glow
.72-1.20 in³ (11.8 - 20 cm³)
4-Stroke Glow


I believ other people have converted these but could not find much info on them. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I do not understand the electric conversions for the batteries and motors. Thanks

Hobby Lobby has a list of Glow to electric conversions, but I don't see your plane on the list. However, here's the link anyway, so you can compare with a similar model in your class.

At least it'll give you a benchmark for starters.
