Electric Dynaflite Butterfly ??

I purchased a Dynaflite Butterfly motor glider with an OS.15 motor. Wingspan 99".

Does anyone have any ideas about converting this plane to electric.
Would like to know motor, speed control, battery and prop sizes.

Suggestions will be gratefully accepted.

I have one also. I have a dualsky pr.25 hanging around. I was going to put that in it. I may get around to it next week during vacation. Depends on the honey do list.

Hi Bill:

Thanks for the links. Very useful. I think I will convert it in the next couple of weeks.

Take care

Been there, done that.

I did a brushless conversion on a Butterfly last fall and it does beautifully. Finally have had a few thermals this spring and it specks out without power just fine. PJS 1500 (way overkill, can ROG in six feet), GP Silver Series SS-35 ESC, Maxamps 3S1P 4000 mah lipo, Graupner Scimitar 11x7.5 folder.
