I'm planning to outfit this with floats so I need plenty of pull. I have some 5S 4000mah lipos lying around and would like to be able to use them if possible. I'm looking at the following motors but can't quite decide which is best:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__7071__TGY_AerodriveXp_46_SK_Series_50_55_580Kv_1580w.html
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__19617__Turnigy_L5055B_600_Brushless_Outrunner_600kv.html

Any suggestions?

The first and third are throwing out over 950watts on 5s and as the model flying weight is about 6lbs then that's 150 watts per pound so should be perfect
   I'm as happy as a very happy sandboy.

My 1.8 had a 91 4 stroker on it..Never seen a cub hover? or unlimited vertical climb.
Right after a spectacular crash, the pilot yelled out ''Channel 35 clear!
