Default Need to know

I was given an OMP Fusion 3d stile airplane and want to turn it into an electric 3d machine. I was told that you should have a minimum of 100 watts per pound, this is a profile plane that has a 8-9 pound flying weight with glow.
The motor that I am looking at handles 1800W max and uses 5-8 cell lipo's here is some info. Also I would like to know what type of packs that I should get I was thinking of using two four cell packs in series need to know what MAH.

4130-8 Brushless Outrunner

KV 380

wire winds 16

5-8 cell lipo

rpm-volt 380

max efficiency 88%

max current18-40A 81%

max current 60A/60sec.

prpop sizes 7cell lipo 14/10 8 cell lipo 13/8

regards Hoooligan
