Perhaps if you added it all up weight wise and got a projected ready to fly weight (AUW) then it would be easier for you to decide. Do you plan to fly both 5000ma batteries at same time? Lower kv motors with bigger props are easier on the battery but generally do not respond as quick. Going to higher voltage and torque will help with that some.
