Default Herr Pitts Special

I`ve never been in here before so maybe this has already been queried? I have a Herr Pitts Special kit gathering dust here and a lightly used OS 10 FSR earmarked to power it.

Before I get to start on this project, it occurs to me that it might be a good candidate for electric power. My experience in electrics to date is pretty light, I have bult a couple of O/D Speed 400 models with gear reduction drives that went OK, but figure this may want a little more power.

Has anyone electrified this before, and if so what motor, batteries etc are recommended?

Thanks in advance.
