That is one of the "SPAD" (Simple Plastic Aircraft Design) combat models... not really a good candidate for electric or for a beginner's first airplane.

It would need power equal to a .46 glow on 20% nitro... or about 700 to 800 watts of power. E-Flite Power 46 on 4 cell 3300 mah LiPo with a 60 amp ESC would do it.

It will be a very responsive airplane requiring a hand launch and its going to struggle until it gains some airspeed... A bad launch or inexperienced pilot (even with a good launch) is pretty sure to plant it firmly in the dirt.
