Default Wot 4 XL electrify

Has anyone out there electrified a WOT 4 XL? If you have then what motor did you choose to use? Flying weight with glo power is close on 8lbs or 3.85Kg. So a motor running on 5 or more cells would be required I reckon.

You'd likely have to look at something like the Aerodrive 4850's etc. ... I have a 4850 500kv on front of the 1.6m Cessna ... replaces a Glow 60.
5S lipo of 3000mAh on 12x6 prop gives 6 mins ... so I doubled up with 2 packs, also sorted CoG with that.

One of the biggest problems with electrifying glow stuff - is access to battery for removal / charging etc. Taking wing of every-time to disconnect lipo is a pain !
