Hello

A German Vortex; I think it's an all-wood construction ?

Hi Jason,
The model is designed for electric power, and a Himax 6330 Pro motor (or similar) with a 100A ESC will work fine.
There were some plans for a YS conversion kit, but i'm not involved in this and don't know the status of the project.

Looks to be plenty of room in the cowl.
