Zagi XT - Brushless

Ok I have a zagi XT and enjoy flying it a lot more than my old twinjet. but the power is a little on the light side.

So I have a few questions.

1) Has anyone converted this model to a twin brushless setup. If so what did you use.

2) If I mounted 2 brushless motors with a seperate speed controller for each, with their own lipo supply can I plug both speed controllers into the reciever ?
Or would that actually double the current into the reciever as well.

3) does anyone make a controller to handle dual brushless and lipo cells.

4) lets assume the above gets sorted and works, are there any draw backs in handling on a high speed wing design like the zagi. The last thing I want to do is invest the time and money only to find she tucks under at 100mph in level flight.

Any help or ideas gratefully recieved.

believe it or not, you CAN run dual brushless on a single brushless ESC. it should actually run better then regular dual brushed motors on a single esc, since the brushless will be exactly sync'ed.
