koysho f-86 sabre .15 df conversion to edf

i was just given a kyosho f-86 sabre jet. it comes stock with a .15 glow engine and a tuned pipe. i was thinking that using a e.d.f. powerplant may be a better way to get this little warbird to fly with more thrust, speed and reliability than the glow set-up. i've read a build thread on this model and the review on the power plant was lukewarm at best. anyone who has any ideas on, size of d.f
unit, batteries, and esc to use, and where to get them. . . any ideas will be a great help. . .

I have considered converting mine to edf as well, it just barely flies on the nitro fan unit. I have made one very scary flight on mine, even with my hundreds of ducted fan flights it was by far the most underpowered I have ever made. I think a 90mm fan on 5-6 cells would move it right along.

thats about what i was thinking. the hc 90mm fan puts out a little less than 4.5 lbs of thrust. and the fan motor and assembly all together is only $40!! i'm gonna go for it!!

selling fan setup?

would any of you guys like to sell the engine/fan/pipe and fuel system of the sabre?
I would love to use one to see if i can build a model that will fly well with it.
