Just for grins I just test fitted a motor I bought for my Goldberg Eagle 2 trike with a 13 X 6.5 prop and if mounted on the same thrust line as the glow motor I got 1" of ground clearance. If I move the "X" mount to the top of the bulkhead I get 2" of clearance. So, be sure to check you clearance but it should be doable. Also. depending on the length of the electric motor you may need to either install a new mount bulkhead or use some mount stand offs or a longer mount to get the prop past the aircraft nose.
