Turbine Airwolf with forward EDF thrusters?

Hello,

I'm in the process of building an Airwolf based on a Trex 800 powered by the Wren 44 turbine.

I was thinking, how practical would it be to have two EDFs where the thrusters would be? I'd set the rotor pitch to 0 degrees whilst in forward flight (or on a rolling take off) flip a switch on the transmitter powering up the EDFs and using the cyclic and tail to steer. Would there be any chance of it being able to gain altitude like an airplane?
