Glow to Electric Conversion - Sportsman Aviation Paramount 50/72 ARF

I've had this plane in storage ever since it was finished - about the same time son #1 arrived and I let my club membership lapse.

Going to convert it to electric - out with the Saito .72 and Cline pump and in with a Turnigy G46 430kV, Turnigy dlux 70A ESC (with data logging) and 5S 3000mAh 30C battery.

Weight RTF (without fuel) with the Saito is 2.4kg.

Hopefully the motor kV is not too low - can fit up to a 15" prop on it but hoping to go with a 14x10 for 40A in. The 13.5x6 Bolly is a bit too small/low pitch for the motor.
