Default Northeast Aerodynamics TA-40 to Electric

I recently completed this electric power conversion to my 30 year old Train Air 40 .
I used an inexpensive "32" size motor with a 60 amp ESC, 4S 3300 mah pack, with a 12' X 8' APC prop.
I used a AR636a receiver using the 3 axis gyro, but no safe functions enabled.

The first flight's were very promising. Plenty of power and duration. Possibly need some more cooling air
intake's, but the battery was barely warm after an 8 minuet flight.
It took a bit of thought to incorporate the motor into the bird and still retain the old engine mount for the front gear steering.
Apparently I cant post any pictures here until I achieve a certain number of post's. Sorry.
