ok, my guess is that you have little experience with airplanes. Adding weight will not "slow them down" but on the contrary, will bring about a higher stall speed.

you will need to do some research and also some calculations too. Simply adding Lipo cells to a given set-up will not increase the performance, at least not beyond a certain rather limited point. What you will do beyond that point is simply burn out your motor, esc or battery.

You need to start understanding what you are dealing with, both aerodynamically and electrically. If you really don't want to do that, then simply copy a successful power system/airframe combo that has the flying characteristics you desire

good luck
