Default Mini Katana (Precision aerobatics) best motor?

I'm about to buy a mini Katana and was wandering what would be a good choice for the motor, I usually fly slow buy would like to have power enough to get out of trouble if needed ?

All I can say its a great flying airplane I had the funtana but it didnt fly as well as the Katana Im using a 450xt from www.justgofly.com and flies great was using a apc 10x4.7 prop but changed to a 10x6 prop for a little more speed and climb I dont do 3d just mostly aerobatics I fly it at half power and it just floats around and like to float in on landings Im using a 3cell 2250 lipoly

I'm installing a Jeti Phasor 15/3 direct drive to an 11/4 prop + a 3S 2100 Lipo pack . It will have tremendous power and be able to hoover at 1/2 throttle with no gear box to mess with .These are available at Hobby -Lobby . They are a bit heavy so I'll move my battery back a little. I had this set up in a similiar model and the power was awesome for this size of plane .
