Have a read through this thread:
http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=18
It discusses power for a similar size/weight biplane, and should answer most of your questions. I'll also mention this thread to a friend who has the same model as yours; he'll have something to add, i'm sure.

I see that my friend Ron, who has converted the same plane as yours, replied to you over on RC Groups. He is a very experienced pilot of large electric models, including numerous biplanes and triplanes, so his advice is definitely worth heeding.
