Default Flip 3D .25 Electric Conversion

I have never flown a converted plane but am seriously thinking about this...this .25 sized Flip 3D weighs in at about 3.5 to 4 lbs. What would be the best setup for flying this plane...also, what kind of battery setup would I need and what type of ESC...I would fly with Li-Po's...simply because it may not be worth a crap with any other batteries...

Thanks for any help!!

A bit further down on the thread list is another thread on the Flip 3D. You might want to read that one and see if there is any useful information there.

Your basic conversion should start with two questions:

1. How many Watts do I need?
2. What's the biggest prop that will fit on the plane?
