Default H-quad dilemma: weight

Hi folks,
Completed my mod build for 470mm H-quad from HobbyKing with 3/4" aluminium frame and arms. I was happy how it looked until I lifted it. It's heavy! I did order (4) powerful 900kv motors, but worried esc or motor won't handle it. I thought two remedies:
-Replace the two aluminum arms with wood.
-Cut and shorten the aluminum arms.

Ideas? Suggestions?
