4S to 6S depending which size props give the best lift performance?
Should work.. Assuming 15" is ideal on 4S and using linear math you get:
4S - 15"
5S - 12"
6S - 10"

But considering the 490kv motor is running cold to the touch with 15" and 4S, I am guessing 12" and 6S would be fine. 13" might be pushing things a bit.
