Default 1/12 scale C-130 conversion to electric

For the last two years I have been constructing a C-130 from Palmer's plans. The plane should weight somewhere in the 25 to 30 pound area. I was planning on using four YS 63 engines.It has a wingspan of 132" and about 117" long. Does anyone have any good ideas on motor, battery, speed control, etc.
I would like to shoot for a ten minute fly time. Also the engine mounts for the YS are already centered. Is there a mount for a motor adapt. Any advise would be helpful.

4 * 4120 axi should do it with 5S2P 2000+ for each motor
For motor mounts the best I like are these ones
