Default seagull yak54 90 to electric

Would like to hear from anyone who has done a brushless install in a seagull yak 54 90. I just got the plane and havent decided on a motor yet but definitely going brushless.

I tried this plane with a 26cc gas engine..............It came in at 10lbs with Hitec 645 servos. Probably a larger AXI,Hacker or similar. I think it will be great as an electric with 6-7s 6000mAh pack. By the way, my Brillelli 26cc engine weighed 3lbs with ignition............Hope this helps in some way.

Yaw ... you want to look at 8S for starters (4,000 to 5,000 mAh) ... 6S is only good for about 9 lbs thrust without pushing the batts hard. You can also consider 10S but wing loading will go up although it would be great for a bigger plane later on. In terms of motor look at something along the lines of the AXI 5325/20 (8S), Scorpion S4035-250 (8S) or Hacker A50-16L (8S). You want to go with a 90A ESC once and for all ... props are around 18x10.
