props n power for gws spit

hi all, been reading and reading and reading and learning and learning and learning, all at the EZONE.

i am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my gws spit and have a few
questions, if you don't mind.

the spitfire on the bus right now is the prepainted green model,
i'm not sure if this is the 350 or the 300 motor.

i plan to run this bird on two sony ( 2 cell per pack ) 1350 mah lithium ion batteries. will this be enough juice ? will i need to go
with 3 cells per pack ?
i also have some NiMh batteries that came out of an aerobird.
they are a funny size, fatter than aa's, but about 2/3rds the length. they are 7 cell, 900 mah, 3x3x1 configuration.

i have been flying a pico stick for fun with these 1350 sonys
with flight times of 45 minutes. i noticed that by changing from
the stock 10X47 gws prop to an APC 10X7 prop the performance
was oustanding, and the flight times were actually longer.
my friend and i have been combatting with the sticks and having
an absolute blast. lost mine yesterday after he cut my tail feathers off. pretty spectacular crash ! there is NOTHING left.
i would like to use an APC on the spit, now i'm wondering which one will be the best match. or is the GWS prop pretty good ?
i think the GWS prop that comes with the spit is a 10X7 ??
i am thinking that the same 10X7 apc will be a better performer
but wanted your experience to know before i crash due to under
powering, or cooking an esc, or motor.

i've been admiring the other spits on here, well done everybody !

sounds like this one may be a tuff one to balance ?

i'll be flying 3 channel, no rudder. any advice here ?

thanks in advance, i can't wait !
