Default Kontronik 480 Power source

Hello all!

I have a brushless direct drive Kontronik 480 7.2 BL300 motor and a Rondo 480 speed controller, and I was wondering what power source I require for this combination??? I have had a lot of difficulty finding out, and after close to 20 emails I still have no solution!!

Plane data:
- home made ALL BALSA park flyer style
- weight only ~ 260g (11 oz or so) with no engine or battery pack
- wingspan ~ 33 inch or so
- wingarea ~ 214 square in.

The question is.... What size prop will i require, and what power source? Would a 7.2V 1350 mAh Lithium pack work? Or is more "ampage" required... like a number of kan 1050 cells?

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Very confused....
