Default Battery for an 05 motor

Hi,
I recently bought an old kit that is a 2 meter glider and it came with a Master Airscrew 7.2 v 05 motor with gear reduction(not sure of ratio) and a 10 in. folding prop. With all the changes in battery tech, what is the lightest battery that I can run in this plane? I plan on using it only intermittently to get to altitude.
Thanks,
Bernie

Lightest?

2 Cell Lipoly. I would suggest at least a 1500 mah 20C pack or a 2100 15C pack. It will weigh about 4 ounces.
