Talking Deweyville Special

Looking to convert an old parasol plane, the Deweyville Special, from glow to electric. 74 inch wingspan, 5.5 pounds without motor, esc, batteries. Any suggestions on an appropriate motor, esc, battery, prop combination?

I would think this would be over kill for the slow flyer. Could step down the the Tacon 25. I would start at a 12x6 prop check with a watt meter. If to much, step down to a 3s battery and go up in prop size.

Motor
Tacon Big Foot 32 Brushless Out Runner Motor for Airplane (770KV)

ESC
Hobbywing FlyFun 60A OPTO Brushless ESC (No BEC) | Value Hobby

Battery
GForce Elite Series 40C 3700mAh 4S 14.8V LiPO (T-Connector) | Value Hobby


Buzz.
