Default cermark Islander conversion

Sal I have a twin engine Cermark Islander with two 05 electric motors. I plan on using a 3s 4400 lipo to power both motors. Will this give me enough power and if so what would the duration be and what size ESC will I need? Thanks, Phil

The batteries sound fine, but I cannot tell much without knowing what motor you are using. I cannot look up the airplane because the Cermark site is closed for maintenence. You will need two esc's but the amperage rating will depend on the motor output based on the motors and the requirements of the aircraft. The batteries sound ok. What is the output rating for the battery?

Here is what I need to go further:

Airplane
Wingspan
wing area
flying weight

Motors
Kv (rpms per volt)
Io (amps)
resistance (mohms)

If I already know the motor I can find out the info
