Default Can This Glow Trainer be Converted to Electric?

Hey all,
The last time I flew a glow powered aircraft was 2008. Job changes, residence changes, relationship changes, and other things got in the way of my favorite hobby - flying RC planes! Now that I'm a bit more settled down here in Florida, I happened upon a Hobbico Superstar 40 with an OS 40 LA engine on it. That's all good and fine as I have plenty of experience with glow engines but I'm thinking of converting this aircraft to electric. Aside from park flyers I have little experience with larger aircraft running on sparktrinos.

I'm thinking a motor in the 1kW range would power it well enough but I don't have a clue where to even start! Any help would be grand.

Oh no! Why not continue with glow power?? Electric power is sooo boring!
