Default modeltech SE5a headed for electric

i have a modeltech SE5a that i have been wanting to put together. i have a jeti phasor 45-3 and the 70 opto controller as well. i also have 2, 8-cell 2400 nicad packs that i figured i would use. i would consider using lipos,but am not sure what to use,as far as size(mah) or cell count. any ideas or guidance would be great. i think this will be a stout power set-up for this plane. let me know some opinions. thanks.

I have been flying the se-5a for almost a year now elecrified. I have a hacker a30 12xl running on a 4s2p thunderpower 4200 mah. I mount the batteries and esc under the cowling for balance. I swing a 13x6.5 e prop and she flies great. A little faster then scale, but at 1/2 throttle very realistic. There is a pix of it in the june issue of model airplane news taken from the AZ electric festival back in January. Good luck and enjoy......
