From the above posts, I sounds like it is OK to run the Stock Motor with a 6x4 prop and an 1800mAh battery . I have been running with a 1500mAh Battery. Am I ok with the 1800?

I know so little about these lipos!

Second question, I had an unscheduled landing (hear crash) today and my battery came loose and bounced around in the compartment. The shrink wrap was damaged where the wires exit the battery. No wires came undone and there did not appear to be any damage although the battery may be a little puffy, really not much if any. Is this battery still safe to use? The prop was still turning when I recovered the plane (someone neglected to move the throttle to the off position after the "landing" (nose first vertical). The battery was slightly warm when I disconnected it. After It cooled, I recharged it (outdoors) and It seems to have taken a normal charge.
