9.6V nicd are about 10 oz. or about 280g. a 2200 mAh 3S lipo is only about 190g. Can probably put in a 3000~3300mAh 3S instead of the nose weight.

The motor is covered by the spinner and does not have much airflow over it. Probably a bad idea to run it constantly and at full throttle. I guess you can handlaunch at 50% throttle and do a gentle climb to altitude before turning off and just glide/thermal.
