ESM AT-6 Texan conversion to electric.

Just bought an ESM AT-6 Texan kit from a local flyer for 10$.
The reason is that the last two owners crashed it. To date it has had 3 Four stroke engines and a 700grms of lead in the front to balance it.
Has anyone else had trouble balancing it?
Anyway I decided to convert it to electric.
I have a 50mm 880 kv motor that weighs over 400 grms and two 2200 4cell lipos that are right in the cowling.
I did remove the lead from the cowling that the previous owner had glued in and had to spend 3 days repairing it.
Going back to fixed u/c for now as it is better for our rough grass field.
Seeing as one wing was broken off I cut a piece out of the wing roots and now have a straight trailing edge which means the CG can move back a bit which helps.
Just wondering what other guys might have done with it.
