Should, but the J-3 motor is not the most powerful - I'd go with a P-51 motor/gearbox.

Pictures?

Flyzone brick is good in that it has rotary servos and a spare (4th channel) plug.
Where one 'could' fit a BL esc.. assuming you could reset the tx to use that channel as throttle.
Covering need redoing imo.
