a) 1st choice, buy a new plane that has been designed for electric (same size and weighs about 2 lbs less). It cost about $250.00 or less to get a new one flying good.

b) If you decide to keep the plane (a bit heavy), you would need an 60A-80A speed controller, 6s lipo to have enough power, a motor weighs around 250 - 320g, and 14 to 15" prop to generate enough thrust. These would cost around $150.00 (battery included).
