Glow to Electric Setup for a Pica FW-190

I have a Pica FW-190 that I was going to us a os.25 glow but I have changed my mind and would like it to be electric. Since this is my first electric project I would like some sugestions as to what moter, battery, esc and prop combinations that have worked on this size model. It has a 36" wing at 220sq's.
Thank You for your help

John

I posted on this plane before in this forum too and didn't get much response. I think this plane has not been converted often. It looks like it will come out very heavy with high wing loading. So its going to need a lot of power and fly like a bullet to stay airborne. You'll need to be an experienced flyer. I'd say minimum 480 or turbo 450 power and 800AR cells or bigger. I've got a 2:1 geared T450 that I'll try in mine but I can't recommend it because the gearboxes aren't available, I had to make one.
