at 24 lb you can get about 3100 Watts out of the 10s 5000 Mah packs that would give you about 130+ Watts per lb. Enough for good sport aerobatics

at that weight and pulling that many amps you may be looking at 5 minute flights or less

2 6s 5000 Mah packs with a smaller prop will give you more power or onger flight times

Not familiar with the spec's for your motor

You will need a 100+ amp ESC

The lipo set up will will be lighter and give higher power

It should be easy to cut the top of the cowll to provide easy acces over the motor mount for battery instalation,if there is not enough room on top of the motor mount, then you can mount them under the motor mount, a bit more difficult to get the battery's in and out

The Hyperion is a good battery and can be charged at 2c with the right equipment, so charging time for your flight pack in normal use will be under 20 minutes.

Good luck on the conversion
