Coaxial to single blade fixed pitch conversion?

Hello,
I am wondering if it is possible to convert a hubsan invader fpv from coaxial to single blade fixed pitch. This is because as a coaxial the two sets of blades can collide in windy weather. There is already a single blade fixed pitch version so would it be as simple as switching the parts over?

The only problem is, almost everything is different, even though you might see a similarity.
You would be literally changing everything except for a handful of screws (and maybe servos). Oh, and the tail boom supports & skid "nuts".
Not sure if I over looked anything, only working off 2 photos from Hubsan site.
Sorry to offer discouraging info, but it's just the realities of this hobby.

it would be simpler and probably cheaper to just by 4 channel single rotor. they start at around $40 go up from there.. and there are lots of them..

Buy a quad and move the FPV gear over to it.
