I would love to convert this one. It would even be lighter when you dig a bunch of foam out of it.
I would cut the nose off ahead of the canopy and dig it out to save weight. Then glue the horizontal tail and wings on and cut off the vertical fin and the stabs off where they meet the fuse. This way you can set up all flying stabs for taileron control.
Next saw the fuse in half. Now you can dig out the intake and exhaust to fit a fan with no lip perfectly. You will be able to get 100% fsa no problem with a 22mm. Dig out the canopy and the area under the canopy and you have plenty of room for two servo's and the batts. Glue it all back together and put a magnet or two on the canopy. Done.
Wish I had the time. Maybe later.
