Default Building A "hybrid" Will It Work?

Through two crashes of friends planes, I ended up with a HANGER NINE CAP 232 FUSELAGE, and a AIRWILD EDGE 540 WING. both of these came out unscathed.

Now I'm thinking of HYBRIDDING the two together. I want to make it plug in wings (as the AIRWILD has)

I have a new in box, MVVS 150, I want to power it with.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I'LL TRY IT ANYWAY, BUT I'LL APPRECIATE ANY FEEDBACK IN ADVANCE.

Most important thing will be to get the wing incidence angle the same as the CAP had originally (unless that was the cause of the crash)...and the balance point at the same place on the wing that the Edge had originally.

Do that and I'd expect it do just fine (assuming these were similar sized planes)

Man that sounds like a splendid project. I think you will end up with a really nice plane heading the above advice. I would think that that mvvs will do fine. During your rebuild keep lightweight at the top of the priority list.
