And you can't fool me. I see the love underneath your veil of sarcasm and barbs. You're just a big soft teddy bear aren't you? :P
Just try an keep wing loading around or under 40oz/sq ft and I'll bet it still flys nice. That's just a guess and it may actually be able to be a bit higher. My TF GS Corsair was 58oz/sq.ft and it still flew very nice, till it lost power. They DON'T glide very well at that weight.
You shouldn't have that problem going electric though. Get her painted and go enjoy it. First flight will be a knee shaker for sure. I thought I was going to have to hand off the radio on Corsair maiden. Next flight was like I had been flying it for ever though.
