I agree with Andre, most older kits do not have the space for battery packs and may cause the CG problem mentioned.
Alternative and better priced motors ie MSComposit Twister motors are available that have the same performance as AXI and/or better. Most of these bigger Twister motors have a very nice metal mount, keeping the motor open to all possible cooling, these mounts are perfect for the type of 3D airplanes. In cowl mounts for scale aircraft's are also available.
Check this site for Hanger 9 90 size Mustang electric conversion.
Newer packs are also available from Kokam ie 4S1P 3200 and 5S1P 3200 packs. Now you only have to charge one or maybe 2 packs at a time. Better voltage for better punch and with these packs in parallel the possibility for large scale are endless.
