Honestly, with as tail-heavy as this thing is you could easily get away with 4s 5300's and probably larger. You'd be hard pressed to find a battery heavy enough to correctly balance the plane when actually placed in the battery compartment where batteries were (mistakenly?) intended to be placed (utilizing all the straps).
That Turnigy motor I ordered up is actually lighter than the stock motor. I'm thinking 5000's will easily balance with room to spare and 6000's shouldn't be out of the question. Disclaimer: I didn't use an CG calculator, I'm just doing some educated guessing.
