Anyone ever built a electric version of 1/2A .049 A-10 from 1992 Model Airplane News?

Asking because I framed one up for .049's. Gave up on idea of getting motors running inside 2 litre bottle naccelles. Designed at 56" wing span 460 sq in. 45"body. Around 40 oz all up weight. Thought this frame would be good electric conversion but what fans, or props inside fairings?? Thanks Glen

I had that plan for years but never built it, I can't stand stand off scale airplanes. The fuselage is a box, not rounded at all. So finally I drew up my own plans, with scale proportions.

If you did decide to built it, probably you would use Mega 4 turn motors in parallel on 8 x CP2400s on cut down 3 bladed props, or use kyosho fan units and build nacelles.

I know of one built in Arizone by Bob Reynolds or his son several years ago, they used car motors and two apc props combined into a 4 bladed cut down prop. Kyosho endoplasmas would work.
