Default RE: GP Yak 54 to glow

The planes designed from the get go as electrics are built very light... particularly the engine mount area and landing gear area.... and might not hold up well to the vibration etc associated with a glow engine.
I'm looking at getting one of these for myself but would likely stick with electric. It appears though in the documentation that the electric is a .10 size equivalent.
