Default Havoc Xe

There may already be a thread on this but we've decided to buy one of these little guys and put my newly order Kingtech 30 in it. I'm hoping they'll be making a conversion kit for it soon. Anybody else considering this?

I would love to do a conversion. My concern. The fan access is way back. If putting a turbine in the same place it is going to be tail heavy. They have big batteries way forward that a turbine wont have. Is there much room for a fuel tank near the CG? Will be interesting. If it works out without a bunch of ballast I'd totally be in for one. Just not in to EDF.

I have two k30's, good engines. One is in a 1250mm wingspan foam Skysword, tons of power more than I would dare push the airframe to and apply any sort of high G. The idea of cramming one of these in a 1040mm wingspan foamie even though it could be made to work well I have zero interest, your building a heavy wing loaded plane with power you would be foolish to use fully. Honestly think this Havoc would be best enjoyed on 6's 4000mah.
