Default 50 cc Revolver to Electric

I would like to convert my second 50cc Great Planes Revolver to electric power. Any suggestions on motor, esc, battery combination, and any other particulars that I might encounter? Looking forward to all replies...thx in advance.

Now days you have a great variety of electric motors to choose from, it's all up to your wallet. I recommend Eflite360, I have converted from DA50 to.
180A speedy, running on 12S spinning 26x10 prop, giving me 16+ kilo pull at peak in "Extra 300", (~9kg/AUW) compare to 11/8.5 with the old IC set up. Just plug it in and off you go, no more hassles with the noisy old nuisance crap.

After a decade of this -

- to this.

Should have done it long time ago!

Dream to fly.
