Default TH Kaos Recommendations?

I love the looks of the Tower Hobbies Kaos, but without the landing gear, so I'm thinking of making mine electric (makes for easy hand / bungee launch and belly landings).

So, what's recommendations for power system? I'll probably use HK stuff, so if that helps.

Thanks,
Frank

If at first you don't succeed,
...carrier landings are not for you!

Strongly suggest landing gear. If nothing else, to protect the prop and motor shaft.
Here's an example:

Another example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk5EYCRYoJo
.... AXi 4120/14 brushless outrunner, ICE 75 amp esc, 5-cell LiPo (18.5 volt) 6,000 mah. ...running a 13-10 or 12-10 prop.... weighs in at 8 lbs.

TurnigyTR50-55B 600kv Brushless Outrunner may be similar to AXi Gold 4120/14,... Uses 4-6 cell Li-Poly packs and 11-12 inch props on planes up to 8 lbs flying weight. Manufacturer suggests a 12 x 8 prop on 6 cells or 13 x 10 on 4 cells.
