How to convert from fuel to electric

I have a Aveox 1010 2Y motor that I need to find a home for. I like the look of an Thunder Tiger P51 lazy flier. http://www.acehobby.com/products/air...r51/index.html
This is a .25 sized IC plane and I think the Aveox would work great with a gearbox. I know it will be on me to fashion a motor mount and such, I've just never done it before. Would the battery pack be placed where the fuel tank should be? Would the battery pack(probably CP1700SCRX8) and motor be heavier than a .25 engine and tank of fuel? The plane expects standard radio and servos, but would it wise to use lightweight stuff?

Any other ideas from people that have converted to electric?

Thanks

MIKE
