what is the best power package for Kabriolin

Can anyone help. I have a Kabriolin 3D model and want an power package that will enable me to prop hang and torque roll with ease whilst still being relativly light. Duration is not too much of a big deal, I would be happy with the 5-6 minuite mark. What I dont want is a power package which is guttless but at the same time I do not want one that makes the model into a heavy pig.
Any help would be great

Mine's got a Hacker b50-13S with 6.7:1 gearbox. Using an 18x10 prop and 12 cells, motocalc estimates about 50 amps and 126 oz of thrust. AUW of mine is 85oz. Haven't flown it yet though, but the numbers look really good (going to try it this weekend if it dries out a bit)

JeffD,
Jason Shulman was flying that combo in a Diablotin Super at the MWE. Only difference was he used 14 cells. Claimed weight was 88 oz. The video is at: http://www.angelfire.com/az/rccraze/

I am using a Hacker B50 12S with 6.7:1 gerabox APC 15x10 and 14 cells. The whattmeter shows 43A and AUW is 88oz. I have only made a couple of fairly conservative test flights so far, so can't comment on the vertical ability with this setup. But, it flies very nicely and doesn't seem underpowered or overweight!
