home build zagi thingy

I have just made my first hot wire cut airplane a kind of zagi like thing. And it looks pretty good and is very strong. i made it out of EPS foam and put a glasfiber spar in it for strengt.
It has a span of 48 in
a wing area of 480 sq. in
AUW is 19.1 oz with a 7 cel 270 mah battery.
Im looking for long flight duration and not to much speed.
I would like to know what kind of power you recommend.

Here's a picture of what it looked like bevore being painted i dont have one jet after the paint job.
And i know that the gear that is on it in the picture wont get it flying but that was just to see if it would work ok.

I've built planes similar to this in design, span, area, and AUW, and they flew great with a Speed 400 6v direct drive turing a 6x3 or 6x4 prop. I have been running an 8x1100AEL pack and the power and duration is great.
