Default Seniorita

Hello all
I have a Seniorita almost built and was wondering if I should make it an electric or fuel plane. Any ideas? Would an electric power this big plane? Would it be better as an electric? Just wondering.
Also I have the plans but somehow lost the instruction book to it. Does anyone out there have the booklet of instructions for the seniorita airplane?

I'm putting a E flight 32 on mine ,i'm adding lights and ailerons .I can always throttle back . I think a 25 would pull it just fine .

,awwww,you know I'm electric all the way gramps!

that's the reason i don't buy a small harbor freight generator to charge batteries at the field . i don't want the gas smell in the car taking it to the field.

Pretty funny we need a gas generator to charge our batteries. At least the generator usually start's up easier than a slimer motor.

I think I had a 25 size motor in mine using a 4c battery. You might need the wgt. to get the CG, and used a 11" prop. Made mine into a night flyer lots of fun day or night.
