Default Russian Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-17 EDF jet

The latest large scale EDF jet from Avios. Features a howling 90mm ducted fan system that pushes it along at good speed, retracting landing gear with gear separately sequenced gear doors, an air brake and LED light system. Needs a 6S5000 to 6000 pack to fly. Take off and landing were very easy and in between it performed very nice slow scale aerobatics. Use of the rudder was mandatory in the turns especially in the wind I flew in. Great fun !

Who's gonna be the first to convert this to turbine power with one of the crop of new tiny turbines that are now available? Does it look like there is room for a sufficient size fuel tank over or very near the CG?
