I thought so.

Your mileage may vary....
Thanks! The cooling is one issue I thought of but I'm fairly certain there is enough area between the spinner and the fuselage that it would allow airflow... time will tell.
The other issue I thought of was that maybe the spinner would cut down on prop area and therefore reduce thrust/efficiency etc, but the counterpoint to that was that the fuselage blocks the same amount of area anyway....
Also, I also am not going to use the stock props, gonna use some APC 8x6 electric pusher props instead on 4s. I am going to replace the ESC with a CC Phoenix 60 I have laying around and that should theoretically provide enough leeway for the amperage (though I will do watt meter tests before I fly of course).
Finally, I am thinking of painting a custom scheme and I stumbled across the glider attached below. I haven't found any other photos of this aircraft at this time (its been eluding my searches) but even if I don't, its not like this is a scale scheme anyway for the SSS, I'm just gonna make my own inspired by this one.
