Default scale bell 47 with mCPX electrics

I have seen some people building scale helicopters using plastic kits and the electrics of an MCPX there is not much more weight and the mcpx has more than enough power to fly them (the bit extra weight makes for a more scale like flight )
I am using a 1/35 scale 2 seater kit you can use the 1/48 scale kits for the larger helicopters , huey , jet rangers etc

The floats are a bit heavy i am using them to hide the battery i need to make some lightweight ones from foam ( i made some foam ones for my MSR and that floats and flys ok )

I don,t know if this form is still alive,but I wanted some help in making a Revell bell h-13h plastic model into a rc model. I came across these builds and they inspired me to try my hand at a build of my own. I have never flown a helicopter before.The last post on this form was in 2011 Now it is 2018 and was wondering if different power units could be used in place of the Blade MCPX I just wanted to know of what I could use to power the Revell kit. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
