Kyosho Catalina PBY

Good morning guys
I picked this ARF up from a friend back in November, Still unpacking from the move but I need to start planning the build on this guy. I've never built a water-plane and I would like to build this as an electric. Anybody with some suggestions I would like to hear them. I am no noob to the building process.

Thanks

Gene

Post weight and wing loading for best suggestions. Also, what is the max prop diameter that can fit? Otherwise use a motor calculator and set up for 100 watts of power/ lb.

here is what I have off the box.
Wingspan: 68.5 in. (1740 mm)
Wing Area: 573 sq. in. (37 sq. m)
Length: 44.5 in. (1130 mm)
Flying Weight: Glow: 5.5-5.7 lbs. (2500 g), Electric: 101 - 104 (6.5 lb.) depending on configuration.
Wing Loading: Glow: 22 oz. sq. ft., Electric: 26 oz/sq. ft (based on listed wing area)
Airfoil: 16% semi-symmetrical

I'm thinking this is pre-LiPos
