Default F16 Conversion EDF to Prop

OK guys ... I have a Lanxian 70mm EDF F16 that I really am not fond of. The 70mm EDF flies it - but needs so much power - it is just overweight ... I ended up using 5S in her.

Bare weight all in but without LiPo is 1050gr
LOA = 1020mm
Span = 780mm

My thoughts are to remove the EDF unit and fit a prop up front. If I hollow out the nose area - I can slide a brushless in there and then spinner can give nose cone back.. Battery size can be reduced to possibly 4S ...

Question is what motor and what prop ? I was thinking something around the 35 - 38 size with 8 to 10" prop ?

Ideas please ?
