Motor/cell/prop recommendations from those flying the Graupner ASW-22 B270 or similar

Got a good deal on this plane, NIB:

Wingspan: 105", Wing area: 679 sq. in., Weight: 79 oz., Wingloading: 17 oz./sq. ft., Airfoil: Eppler 195 modified, Skill level: INT/INT, Radio: standard receiver, 4 micro servos, Motor type: 10-cell

Seems to be an older kit, with the following brushed recommendations:
Graupner Speed 700 turbo direct drive system, a 10-cell 1000 SCR battery pack, and FX35D speed control. Alternative is Turbo 900

NSP has an old posting with Sal offering:

Mega Midi 7 with 8 cells and a 10x6 Graupner prop & FX35D ESC.

Anone have a different opinion? A higher voltage, lower amperage Lithium Polymer approach, perhaps?

Presently I fly two electrics: a S480 powered TwinJet, on (9) RC 2400 cells, and an OD Su-27 Flanker on a Mega 16-15-5 and 4S1P LiPoly:
