If you work up to it slowly you may find that 8,000 RPM is more than enough and you don't even want or need to fly at full throttle. Also, the pack voltage will drop as the capacity is used up also and that will drop the RPM some for a given throttle setting.

As an example, here is some thrust to RPM data on a APC E 14x8.5 and it looks like 8,000 RPM or so will get you good thrust. This APC prop (one piece two blade) is rated for about 10,000 RPM.
