The conversion boils down to basically gutting everything until only the bare body shell is left. The motor mounts are then glued into the lower shell. The bottom parts of the mounts are then glued with some epoxy and screwed to the motor so it forms a solid sandwich construction.
To mount the flight controller mounting plate the two hoops for the original flight controller mount and battery protector need to be cut away until the ridges of the battery compartment. Then using the mounting plate as a template drill four holes for mounting the plate, PDB and FC.
Lastly the old battery door can be glued in place to provide additional structural strenght. You might need to cut away some parts to accomodate the screwholes.
