Default super decathlon large scale

I built a Dynaflite Super Decathlon , an I am thinking of going elec. The plane is 15lb with a super tiger 2300 in it . I am low budget , but I know it will cost . I don,t do a lot of electric so I need a motor size and battery that will work for this plane . If anyone can help it would be great.

Running a 20X8 prop gives about 20 pounds of thrust at 74 amps.
