Default What to do with jett 50 FIRE

So my viper umm mad contact with the ground yesterday in a low pass and lets just say it didn’t fair to well (the landing gear and motor were over 200 feet apart[X(]!)

So now the big question what can I put it into I have thought about maybe another Q-500, Or my other idea was to get a Weston magnum cut the built up engine cowling off , rotate the engine 90* and build a new fibreglass cowling for it this would let me run the fire without having to cut things apart too much and I could make a semi streamline cowl?

I’m open to all suggestions!

Well, that is exactly what I plan to do with the spare Magnum I have, after a couple of other projects are swept off the bench. BTW a Jett 8 ounce bubblefree tank fits nicely in the Magnum and gives decent flight time. By the time you burn off 8 ounces of fuel you've already done the requisite high speed passes, a few maneuvers, etc. and it's time for a break.
