HI, I have done the conversion. Used a schubeler HST 94 fan on 12s 5300mah gens ace packs (3x 5300 4s packs) , hobbywing 120HV ESC and E-flight 60-120 electric retracts. All-up weight came to 8.7kg. first flights was with open ducting with lip on fan and it went very well, then I made some full ducting and it is faster and requires less throttle to cruise. No bad habits, slows very nice for landings and is a joy to fly! The HST fan really needs 14s to reach optimum performance, but I fly with only 12s and still recorded a speed of 220km/h. I fly with the CG just in front of the forward former in the fan compartment.
