FWIW, I did a successful conversion back in the days, using an AXI 4120/18 motor, 60A ESC and 16 big heavy round jugs (Nicad cells) spinning a 14x7" prop. It was a bit of a porker due to the heavy batteries, but flew well. A similar spec motor and 5 Series Lipo should do much better due to the weight saving of Lipo vs. Nicad cells.

I believe there's an Eflite 46 motor of similar specs....
