Power 160 motor, Castle 90 HV speed control, 10S 4500 mah batteries and 18x12 prop.

That being said, you are already starting off with a heavy airplane, that is why I recommend the relitivly small batteries. It should rip but for about 5 minutes. Make sure to do modifications to get cool air in and around the power components and even more important, provide a means to get the hot air out.
