Default Oxalys electric to glow

I have a new Oxalys electric version and would like to know what I would need to do to convert it to nitro? I would probably use a YS70.

i've put a Mgnum 15 on a Mini-Funtana, an Enya 45 on a Kadet Seniorita EP, and am in the process of putting a TT Pro 25 on a 49" EP Yak 55m from fleabay. All I really do is make sure the firewall is beefy enough to take the force the engine is going to impose on it. That means you may want to add some gussets or triangle stock in there somewhere. I also lightly paint the firewall with a thin layer of 5minute epoxy to waterproof it. You'll need holes for the fuel line and a hole for the throttle pushrod.

i kinda look at it like "bolt that sucker on there and make it work". it's not hard, just take your time, make measurements and enjoy. it will be a rewarding experience to create something that wasn't really intended to be!!

Scotty, I apologize for the late reply, but wanted to thank you for the advice especially since I have never converted one before. I do not fly electric and really don't have any desire to do so. I really liked this airplane and was only able to get one in the electric version.

Thanks again.
