Golden Oldie glow-to-electric

Hi all:
I recently did my first glow-electric conversion on my Golden Oldie (Fred Reese design). I put together a PDF of some of the steps with pics which I am attaching. Comments and questions welcomed.

Very cool conversion of an old Plane. It would seem that the electric motor would have more torque than the glow engine? Enjoy your new flyer .

Electric should have al least if not more torque
