Avistar Elite Glow to electric conversion

Hi guys

I have an Avistar Elite with a OS 55 ax, but due to the high cost of glow fuel I would like to put it a electric motor.

The manual recommends the rimfire 46, but my flying club is at 1600 meter above sea level (around 5249 ft) that's why I went with the OS 55 ax.

So the question is, what electric motor, speed and prop can you recommend me that flies the same as the OS55, (I like to make aerobatics), also I have some 6S 3300mah lipo packs than I can use.

Thanks!!

first check the reviews and discussion on this motor, scroll down on the page, and see what others are running and what kind of watts/amps.
but i think a 13x6 or 13x8 would be a good start to.

One of our club members has a electric Avistar and flies 3D with it. He is using a e-Flite Power 46 motor, e-Flite 60A ESC, 5S battery and 13x8 prop.
