I would really like to convert my variEz to electric. 

Has Anyone done this?

Does any one know or recommend an aircraft electric engines that produce 60 Hp

Because you want to turn an airplane that has an incredible useful range into one that has no useful range?

No. There's been one electric Long-EZ (Chip Yates'), but he was going for (and set) a speed record for electric aircraft (soon to be broken). He had about a 15 minute endurance.

60 HP is not nearly enough for a Varieze. Emrax makes some nice motors - I fitted a 45 HP Emrax to a Quickie Q1 for a customer, but he still hasn't flown it three years later. It would have had about a 30 minute endurance.

You would turn your Vari, which can fly 1000 miles into an airplane that can barely fly for 6 minutes.
