S&E Modeler Sailaire Conversion plans ?

I am looking to build my Sailaire as an electric. Any one have a copy of the S&E Modeler Salaire electric conversion plans ? OR should I just wing it

Most of the info on E-Sailaire conversions is several years old. Old=HEAVY!!!

Heavy as in 10 or 11 lbs.

The sailaire weighs as little as 5 lbs as a glider with lead in the nose. It doesn't need to weigh any more than that as an electric without the lead.....well, maybe 5.5 lbs.

drop this guy a note...

there is a rcgroups fellows name of ' carrinsr ' and he has made quite a few posts about the sailaires and e-conversion. I would imagine if you sent him a note or you look up his posts via 'search' you would get your info.
