    Hello all
    I have acquired a 1975 Lou Andrews Sportsmaster 65" ws. I have been a glow and gas pilot since 2004. But I am now stepping into the electric world and need some help figuring out the proper motor, esc, and battery combination for this bird. I guess you could say this is a 60 size set up. Thanks in advance.

    There are some companies out there that have electric motors that they say are the same as the nitro. Meaning, if your plane requires a .60 size engine, then they have a 60 series motor. The Tacon Bigfoot 60 comes to mind, but is out of stock everywhere that I have looked and trust. But what you can do is take those motor measurements and compare them to other companies and their motors. But one this size is not going to be cheap, that is for sure.

    Here is the link to hobbypartz and the motor I'm talking about for reference.

    While looking around for motors... knowing the all up weight and the size of prop that it can swing will also make finding a motor easier.
