Default Honda GX50...Viable Conversion?

Does anyone know anything about the new (to Americans) Honda GX50? I've a GX31 powered Big Bee and it's just not enough power for flying at 6000'. I wonder what the converted weight would be? The entire head is advertised as 16lbs. Apparently it has been used with some success in UAV applications. Carr Precision has a conversion kit in the works, however, their web page lacks specifics.

Anyone know more?

Thanks for the link, Dave. I guess I'll just wait and see what comes of it. Apparently there are other larger gas four stroke options coming down the pipe.
