Well I just did the same thing as you. and im really happy with how it turned out. I used the AE conversion kit, 83$. The Castle MMM ESC with 2650 motor, $199. You can use 2X2s lipo with that conversion. Also you could get a Zippy Flightmax 5000 4s lipo and it cost $68 bucks! I got one and love it so far.
do it, you will NOT be disappointed!
