You can almost put the watts wherever you want (within motor limits)with different sized props. More cells = higher rpm. Roughly 2880 rpm per cell.
More pitch = more speed and more watts
More diameter = more torque and much more watts. Then you have the issue of ground clearance or the motor getting too hot.

I am in the same predicament. I bought a 600kv motor but my chargers will only handle 4s. I am in the process of trying out some faster and bigger props to see where I can get to, hopefully without buying a diffrent motor or new batteries and a charger.

Ps. I REALLY like those style planes. I think my next will be some type of texan, trojan or mentor.
