6s power system for a 2.5kg wing?

I've got a 46" wing sitting on the bench that I want to go as fast as possible for as cheap as possible but I'm struggling to find motor options.

I recon I can go up to around 250g and still balance OK.

Any suggestions?

Hi,
I use this motor

Weight about 181 gr.

With 8x6 prop on 4s does 130 mph, 3 lb flying wing.
Have 5 cell ready to try, will need 7" diameter prop max.

Same motor on 6 cell...maybe 5.5"x5.5" prop.

Flying wings not best airframe for top speed records, but still fun.

What is it build off, sounds very heavy for such a small wing span. I just build one with same span and it's only 950 grams, AUW, (Depron).
