Default Newcommer to electrc is convertiog a 35 year old .095 gow to electric

I was iven a

I was given a German kit for an .095 glow power RC about 40 years ago. I was not interested in that small a plane for glow power, but now I would like to build it as an electric RC. I would like to know what size brushless electric moter, lipo battery, speed controller, and prop I need? I have been building kits for over sixty years so I feel I can modify the construction, but I am new to electric power and I do not know about power and battery requirments. The plane has a 46" long , 7" wide very thin wing 1" thick. It is very light construction and should not weigh more than 2 pounds max.

Thanks for any advice your can give me, Mike Hargrove (Kojak41)

E-flite has tables comparing their range of brushless motors to glow power engines. Lucien Miller of innov8tive Designs sells Cobra and Scorpion motors and gives motor/speed control selection advice. Advice about conversions is available on various RC Group forums.
