Default HOB Fighters............electric????????

I have an ME 109 with a carbed .051 that runs nice. I am going to build the P-47 and FW 190 next. I want to go electric. Any suggestions as to motor? I am new at this electric stuff. Thanks

This will turn a 6-7" prop at TeeDee speeds on a 3-cell, Reed valve speeds on 2 cells.
They are $10, and I think it would work quite well on the old HOB kits. Just got a P51 at a swap meet 2 weeks ago.

I use Heads Up frequently. Super fast shipping as well as very reasonable prices.
Just got an inrunner, battery and esc for my 24" Dumas Thrifway Too last week.
Sorry, neither 1/2a or a plane!
