Hi all,

Ive been modelling for years and used to work for a model engineering company. I say this to show that I can model, but what I would like to
know most of all is what size electric motors replace what glow
engines?

I'm new to rc modelling and have decided to go down the electric route as it seems to be cheaper and cleaner, but I dont know what size motors to buy (all the buying will be done online) when the kits say the need such and such a size glow engine? I'm looking at a small C130 which needs 4 x .25 glow engines. A smaller version needs 4 x .051 glow engines.

Does anyone have a conversion chart or formula that explains how to come up with the right sized motor ?

Thanks
