I am new to the electric models and wold like some infromation on converting a Cessna 337 by Marutaka. This is a 1/6th scale model all balsa and will be finished in 3/4 oz glass. All up weight around 8 lbs. This is a pusher puller and was originally designed for two .40 glow engines. Wing span is 73 inches and am limited to a 10 to 10.5 inch propr due to space litations between the tail booms. I am going to finish it in the Navy Blue and Gold as it was used afted Nam when it was turnewd over from the Air Force to the Navy as a range controller at Fallon Nev. Any help in selecting the correct Motors, ESC Battery packs would be greatly appreciated. Roger (dropcop) Gresens San Diego CA

If your sure about the 8 pounds finished weight then take a look at the Mega 600/20/6;

I would go with the Phx45 and a 3S Poly Rc 3300 using an APC 10x5,
this should get you around 400 watts per motor or 100 watts per pound total system power.

This will fly an 8 pound airplane with authority :D
