Default Nitro to electric conversion

I have an acme cyclone pro that I want to convert to electric. How hard would this be?

Unless there is a direct conversion it would be pretty hard.

Looks like it's a two speed, gears << BIG problem >> a motor mount and a short lipo, you may be good. A LOT depends on your skills in part blending.

Like ThePanda posted would be hard to do.

Did the conversion to a GT, GT2 and SC10GT. The big problem was making a motor mount, AE already had the gearing bits, just change from 32 to 48 pitch spur and pinions AND they were 2wd.
