Default Super Sportster 60 conversion

Does anyone have ideas for converting a Great Planes Super Sportster 60 to electric? As I am fairly recent convert to electric, my knowledge is still weak. So many moters, so many gear boxes. I want to build future .60 and 1/4 scale size sport planes as electrics and figure I'll take the good Sportster down from the hanger and figure things out.

Some things I am sure of,

Brushless
LiPo powered

But how od I get sport power with endurance?

My 63" span Crossfire with AXI 4130-16 and 7s2p lipo will go up to 15 minutes which is way more than I fly it.

Thanks for the reply,

I checked out the Crossfire, NICE! It's seems very comparable to the good old Sportster. And after checking out the AXI I get how to mount it. Any comments on controllers? I know Hobby Lobby would like to sell a Jeti. I have have a Jeti in one of my helis and have had no problems. I stuck an ElectraFly in a small park flyer with success.

I am going to try the Sportster 60 using an Astro 40 geared BL on 20 round cells, on floats.
That'll be interesting....
