Default Need help upgrading Eflite Ulitmate 2 (EFL10850)

So I've been beating the crap out of my eflite ultimate biplane for about a year now and it is my absolute favorite airplane to go fly. I'm wanting to upgrade the powertrain but I'm a little unclear on where to start as this is the first tie I've ever tried upgrading an electric foamie. Right now I'm running all stock - 1250Kv 10 size motor, 40 amp ESC, and 2200mah 3s batteries. Do you guys have any suggestions? Can this motor handle a larger ESC and a 4s battery perhaps, or should I change the motor?

The reason for this is I've started using it as my camera rig - threaded rod where the top wing bolt snaps in and clamping it together with washers and wingnuts. It works really well and provides a very steady shot, but I want to make more power to compensate for the added weight

I'm too new on this account to post links, but if you'd like to see my captured footage from this plane, search :ONBOARD: Eflite Ultimate 2 Biplane" on Youtube. Thanks!
