Converting two 44" slope Zagi's to Electric powered

I was given two beaten up 44" zagi's that i will be coverting to electric powered.
The tape has been removed and foam straightened and repaired.

The leading edge on the zagi is epp and trailing edge epo with a spar made out of corflu between, which has been destroyed is there anything else that could be used istead to strenghten the wings.
I will also be looking at some sort of carbon fiber spar system and mounting system for the motor. Ideas please?

I have been looking at the iyf44 ritwing puilds for some ideas and am thinking of using.

Stuff i have:
55a Turnigy Trust esc
2200mah Turnigy nano-tech 45c-90c 3cell x 2
HXT900 servos x 4

Need to buy:
MicroDAN 2505 -1845Kv or
MicroDAN 2505 "Custom" 2535Kv
Lam film (Where can i buy this from in Australia)
Props
Motor mount

I have seen that a member called Klique made a video of how to build a ritewing but also can not find any download link to this.

I have only just started out doing R/C 6 months ago i have a Bixler and a 50" Slope combat wing. I have been into Controll Line for some time and have intermediate building skills.
