While either motor would do the job, the (expensive?) 450 is the better option in my opinion. The weight is ideal, and the extra power can help on windy days and allow vertical climbs. For props, I would use 10x3.8,10x4.7,or DD1060. Again just my opinion, I prefer thrust over speed for the Slowstick. You may prefer a 9x6 or 9x7.

It appears that motor requires a 4mm prop adapter. The collet types are nice, but you may prefer a prop saver at first as it's fairly easy to snap a prop while learning to land. They are cheap enough to get both so you can swap later.

On another note, you may need to ream,drill,bore the prop to fit the adapter. Easy to do if you have the right tool.
