Default EF Extra 300 possible conversion

I have the 58" Extra from EF as many know and at present it has a 90 4 stroker up front ... which hauls her round no problem.

But lately after flying the Zlin with E-Power up front - has me thinking to swap out the 4 stroker and put electric in her.

I would use the same as the Zlin ... Turnigy 5055 400KV with 6S pack ... on a 15" prop.

That would tend to consolidate on what I have without increasing my range of inventory.

I have a new untouched cowl - so that's ready to go on. Would mean cutting out the fuel engine mount and fitting suitable standoff's for E-power ...

mmmmmmm interesting .............

As you see - she has a problem of still rolling when Idle ... so E-Power would cure that.
The 4 stroker can then go in my biplane if needed or my other Zlin.
