POwer 46? Check what the manufacturer recommends and use that as a starting point. SInce all electric motors want to spin everything at the same rpm for a set voltage, find the one that gives you the performance that you want with the lowest amperage draw.

I have mine set up for a 4s 3300 mah 20c packs with an AXI 2826/10 driving an APC 10x6, which is more than enough for me (plane gets downwind in a real hurry and that caused the crash when I lost spatial orientation and applied two rights when I should have gone left on the second.) Plane should be back in the air shortly -- replaced LE wingtip with balsa block and found the wonders of 60-grit sandpaper on light balsa. Landing gear is next, followed by replacing the engine mount with stand-offs.
