It's likely to require more than 1KW. What voltage is contemplated?

What kind of plane are you planning to fly and what kind of performance do you expect?
How much prop clearance is available?
How much wing loading will the plane be able to handle?
All these add up to what size motor and battery pack is going to be needed for proper performance.
