Kinda crazy but another optition would be to go 12S and build just another fuselage section and focus on building it light light light and shed about 8 pounds, and build in full proper ducting. So in the end I would have two fuselages, one set of wings and one canopy that would be interchanable. Present fuselage convert to turbine, so in the end there would be a 32 pound 12,000 watt EDF version, and a 41 pound turbine version. If I want to fly the turbine version take the same wings and canopy but take the turbine fuselage, want to fly EDF, grab the EDF fuselage.

Looking at my build logs I could theroeticly carve out a new fuselage in about 5 weeks, build proper ducting another 4 weeks, get it all set up and dialed in another 3 weeks, Hmmm ...could have the EDF version done in about 2 1/2 months.
