Default Dazzler or Uproar Conversion

I would like to convert a uproar or Dazzler to electric flight.I have always flown fuel planes and I think It would be kick to have a electric funfly plane.I use a magnum 40 on the one I have now.and it works real well.I want to be able to use full sized servos also.
The planes has a 48 wingspan and weighs between 3.5 and 4 lbs. I must tell you I am about as dumb when talking about electrics as they come,but I would like to give them a try with a little help.I don't have a lot of money so please keep it simple. Thanks

Is that 3.5-4 lbs ready to fly, or without engine?

A similar plane, but designed specifically for electrics, and a low-budget power system at that, is the Gary Wright E3D. It's about the same size as a Dazzler, but only weighs about 3lbs, ready to fly. It was designed around a $20 Kyosho Endoplasma car motor and an inexpensive 10-cell CP2400 NiCd pack. I believe the website is www.gwmp.net.

The Dazzler is a 3.5 to 5 lb plane as stated at Tower Hobbies.I assume that is with the motor.Why I want a Dazzler or Uproar is I have owned them and they are a blast to fly.I extended the control services and and modified the tail feathers and I can hang mine with a 40.
Matt the web site that you gave doesn't come up,what is the sites name?

That's the right address. I'm looking at it as I type this.

Drop the period at the end of the URL. Works fine.

Danged automatic url thing. Gotta remember to omit the period when urls are at the end of the sentence. Sorry 'bout that.
