    The CG should be fine in the range of 2 5/8" to 2 7/8" back from the leading edge.

    i have converted several and had a problem getting the cg forward enough. The electric motor does not weigh as much as the nitro engine and I could not get large capacity lipos forward enough for the correct cg. I could stuff smaller lipos up against the firewall, but not the larger 4 and 5 cells. Similar struggles with placement of the HV ESC.
