Default Electric conversion / GP Cherokee

Picking up a used Cherokee tomorrow for $75.00. Now for the electric conversion. This is my Buddy's plane and it is gas with air retracts and of course, the servos. So , I guess it would now be a Piper Archer. LOL

I'm looking at 4 different electric 46 size motors: Tacon, Exceed, SK3, and Powerup(familiar with) but not sure which one. Any thoughts? . All in the 600-700kv 1000W range Probably go with a 70-80 amp esc. Will change out the air retracts to servoless metal trunnion electrics with oleo struts. Will have to see what's he's done there with the openings. Will need a new GP cowl .

By the time I'm done, it will be a ~ $300 airplane. No way around it.

Appreciate expert advice !

Thanks,

Hawk
