It might be an idea to look at Scorpion motors as well - I love 'em.
You can calculate the power using :
AUW in lb X 200 = watts of the motor.
This formula is good enough for scale flying models but if you want to fly 3D then x300 or more.
I find EFlite motors are more powerful then values quoted in their spec.
Tip stall at low speed is typical of Beaver. Have you tried adding some wash-out on ailerons?
