Any convert a GP Super Skybolt to elec?

I'm in the process of converting a super skybolt to electric and was wondering if anyone had done this yet and if so what kind of setup are they running. I'm hoping to have it completed for this next weeks Sharks Fun Fly( This is what I'm running

Super Skybolt
Eflite 60
6s3p 6000 lipo
TrueRC 80 amp esc
Hitec 311 servos
Hitec 555 receiver
2500 nimh receiver pack
15 X 10E Prop

Motocalc is estimating a 25 to 30 minute flight times with a climb rate of 1600 ft for a 8 lb plane with 10 to 10.5 lbs of thrust. Any comments.

All I can say is "You lucky bugger"! I LOVE bipes and wish I had the space to build/store one and the money to do another big plane. I been eyeballing the Super Skybolt for awile now. Maybe once I get moved to my next duty station/house.
