Will an 8x800ar bat pack fit in a Hobby lobby skimmer 400.

I just saw the skimmer 400 on sale at HL but
as I just finished 1 new plane and I am thinking
about building 1 other plane (besides skimmer) I would like to
keep it at cheap as possible.

The radio, motor, prop and covering I have.

I would have to buy servos (I might have to give
up beer for a while) but I have 4 8x
800ar packs and a 1700au and a 1400ae pack
to use instead of buying new packs.

The obvious problems are just fitting, and getting
anywhere near the correct center of gravity.
From looking at the pictures in peoples posts
it looks like there is lots of room in it.

Not to mention that I am at 5500 feet.

I think that 7x 800ar would give me an AUW of 22 oz or so.
8x800 23 oz.

Maybe I could add and extra wing rib or 2.

I could even build some 7x 800ar if that would be
