Default Need Help Converting YS-140 T-Craft to Electric

I am converting my 80” Taylor Craft over to electric and was wondering if anyone had suggestions on the setup. The present flying weight is around 10 ¾ pounds and it hovers good at about ¾ throttle with a YS-140. I want to maintain equal or slightly more power/thrust and hope I can find an electric motor to produce the same power at a weight of 3 ¼ pounds or less for the motor, speed controller and battery. If you need more specifications, let me know. I was considering the a60 -14L Hacker using a 5000 Mah 10s battery and Castle speed controller.

Any suggestions?
