Epower for a Sig 4 Star 120

Anybody out there ever built a 4 Star 120 with electric power. If so, what motor/esc/batt combination did you use and how was the performance?

Something like a Rimfire 1.20 would be my choice. Biggest one they have that still uses a 6 cell battery. A Castle Creation Talon 90. They make bigger sizes, but then you would need to use two batteries for 10-12 cells. Let us know what you do and how it works out.

Thanks Cessna:

So far the Rimfire 120 is at the top of my list. The kit has been backordered from Sig since late April. Not sure when I will get it but I will post whatever I decide on and also how it works out.

I have one powered with a Turnigy G160 290 KV on 8s 5000 battery.
Balances perfectly and has straight up, out of sight power, when you want it. Otherwise, fly reduced power for 12-15 minutes.
I am going to put mine up for sale if interested. Too many planes and not enough room to store them all.
