Default Free Flight to RC Conversion

one of the main reasons i got back into the hobby was to do a lot of conversions from the guillows and dumas FF kits to RC. i know this is very challenging but the engineering student in me just keeps saying "GO FOR IT!" i would rate my kit building experience to intermediate, i built a few dumas kits and countless guillows kits and wish i still had all of them. my main concerns are movement of CG, what equipment to use (motor, ESC, rx, servos, linkages/pushrods, etc.), and what covering to use. any advice? i'm planning on picking up some of the said kits in the 18-3-" wingspan range so the gear i will probably put on board will be a lot of micro stuff. any advice before i go through with this crazy venture?
