Default Convert Sweet Stick - Recent convert to eflight from gas

I attempted to get into electric flight (Smaller plane) a few years ago but received bad advice. I am ready to move forward now. I am a fairly experienced builder and gas plane pilot, though due to lack of time have not been doing much for the last 2-3 years. I have been mostly into .40-.60 size gas planes. I would like to be in the .40 size but in electric. I currently have on the shelf a Thunder Tiger "Sweet Stick" that I would like to convert. Can someone help me through the process. I would like to know what motor, battery, etc. I would also like an understanding of the theory behind it. Should I buy one of the motor calc. type programs? Would this help?

Thanks in advance for the help
Russ

What kind of flying do you want to do? 3D or just cruise? I just put a HiMax 2625/2700 direct drive in a TT ARC Sweet Stick and was pleasntly suprised. It wasn't fast but flew respectably. I'm going to replace it with an AXI2826/10 as the HiMax was just an experiment. I have an AXI 2826/12 in a Magic and it can do everything that a .46 will do.

Thanks for the reply. I would like it to MOVE like a .46 or .50 would. I have not done any 3D and am not interested as yet in that. I am interested in good products with out overspending.
