Converting a Great Planes Spirit 2m

I have a Spirit 2m, and I want to electrify it, but on somewhat of a budget. I need to buy new radio gear (I am using a 2ch currently) and I don't know what to pick for motor size (brushed, because of cost), prop, # of cells and any tips on converting the plane.
If anyone can help me out that would be awesome, and if anyone knows where the best deals for a Canadian are, then even better.
Steve

Excellent stuff, just what I needed. Is the gearbox a 3.5:1 or a 3:1, the caption and photo disagree with each other!
I just priced up what it's going to cost to get the parts, and the new radio (I only run 2ch right now) and it looks like I am in for about $500Canadian! Ouch.
