Any of you convert a 40 sized warbird to E-power?

Yo fellas,

A friend of mine gave (yes, gave) me a new in the box Kyosho P-51 Mustang 40 ARF. Not being one for warbirds, I thought I would do something unique with it and convert it to E Power. Not having a ton of extra time and a lot of projects ready to start I can't devote a ton of time learning all the theory, but I know how it all works.

So, if any of you have done this size project, please let me know what equipment (motor, ESC and batteries) you used. I suppose I would like it to haul A$$. It will be about 7 pounds with retracts.

Thanks!
