Default Do you think this is ok for a 2 meter sailplane

Should be a fun project, here is one posting on suggestions on the conversion:

One note you might check out the 1300 lipo as used in parkzones Radian, is small but enough to give several rides for searching lift

My concern would be the amp draw: that is a 22A cont. motor, but for brief bursts you might get away with it.

Motor: E-Flite Park 480 Outrunner 1020KV; 1020rpm/V; 1.1A no-load; 0.06 Ohms.
Battery: Thunder Power TP5200 (G4 ProRace 50C) (50C); 3 cells; 5200mAh @ 3.7V; 0.001 Ohms/cell.
Speed Control: Castle Creations Phoenix 60; 0.0012 Ohms; High rate.
Drive System: Direct; 11x6 Aeronaut folder (Pconst=1.06; Tconst=0.995) direct drive.
Airframe: Anything you want.
Motor Amps = 26.7
Motor Volts = 11.0
Input (W) = 293.6
Prop RPM = 8363
Thrust (oz) = 44.5
PSpd (mph) = 47.5

I think I agree with Dr. Kiwi. As long as you keep the full throttle run to less than 30 seconds yo uwill probably be fine.
