Default OS 10 FSR to electric

Advice appreciated. I have an old but eminently flyable IM 'Drifter' (2m semi-scale ultralight) wiht an OS 10 FSR as a pusher. Being a tinkerer and keen to try out this new clean, silent world of electric flight. The drifter is a very stable platform, floats to landings (ANY headwind is too much). At present it needs about 125g of lead in the nose to balance the OS at the back of the wing. The 10FSR probably has a little more power than absolutely necessary, but the 3 - 4 m ground runs on take-off are nice! So, anybody game to venture a spec for a brushless motor/esc combination?

THanks folks, love reading the posts
