slo poke glow to electric

I have just picked up a great planes slo poke at a swap meet. It has an OS 36 glow engine in it. I would like some help deciding what electric motor to put in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a field where I can fly a gasser, so if I can't go electric I'll probably have to sell it.

Hi Frankie
Not sure if the kit's still around, but there's plenty of old threads hereabouts on electrocuting this line of kits. Just go to the top of the forums site and do a search for 'Slo Poke'. As expected, it goes under variants like Slopoke, Slow Poke and so on.
