Default Electric to GLow conversion

Hello 1/2 a fliers, I am new to this thread but not new to small planes, actually I have converted a Wattage Pitts to go using an AP 15 engine. Now I have an OS 15 CV-A engine and have been looking at this [link=http://www.nitroplanes.com/blulflulbiar.html]Ultimate[/link] by Nitromodels. Anyone try this setup? I want to have a plane with some good power as the Pitts with the AP15 were a bad combo. The Pitts flew slow and had no vertical clime at all. All flights were adventures in hair raising events that made for adventures (reads scary) flying.

the AP15 with most planes is a bad combo
I used them on lazy planes, where I dint want to go fast or climb fast. I mostly used it for a cheap rear exhaust for a clean looking nose.
