Hacker Motor USA electric motors has this chart for comparison of glow engines and the electric equivalent in electric motors: Click Here
Here's another link to Great Planes site and chart for conversion from glow to electric: Click Here

Below is a PDF chart using watts to horse power equivalent.

The ROT (Rule Of Thumb) as I understand it  is Most electric guides I read say about 100 watts per pound of plane (not for 3D). That's .134hp per pound.
