Has anyone converted one of these? or someone that knows what motor, prob, battery combo that would work best?
I have an AXI 2208,34 motor would it work? and if so what would be the best prop and battery combo?
I am new to electrics (I fly mostly glow) I have owned a few electrics but never tried to convert glow to gas.
Here is a link to the Little Extra on Towers site:

Also if the AXI 2208,34 won't work for the little extra what would be a good size plane (warbird, biplane, sport plane) for it?

Your help would be appreciated

I have a converted lil somethin extra. I'm using a e-flight park 450 outrunner with an e-flight 20 amp esc. Fly's pretty well. I use it as a general fun plane I yank out when I want to fly in my backyard... aka 5 acre alfalfa field.

I can't say for sure that your motor will work since I'm pretty new to electric and I only have used e-flight motors. But all in all I'm happy with the conversion. Here's the website I used as a guide

Thanks for the info I was beginning to wonder if someone would reply. The park 450 is what a lot of people were putting on the mini electric ultra stick, I have one with the AXI on it and it flies just as good as the park 450 so it should fly the little extra just as good as your setup does. I don't want it over powered so if it flies good then I would be happy. Thanks again for the help I really appreciate it.

Still one of my all time favorte planes - just flew my Herr a couple of days ago!

Still flying with the MPJet and it does wonderfully.

A kick that is for sure....
