RL: The 400xt should work for you. Especially if you have kept the plane light. Mine is around 18oz ready to fly. I started with a 1047 GWS prop and it flew well with static draw of 12A. This is over the 10A rating that Hobby-Lobby lists but I only use full throttle occaisionally if I want a long vertical up line and then only for a few seconds. Most of the flying is at 1/2 throttle and it always came down cool. I also tried an 1147 which worked and eventually the APC 1238. The 1238 at 13-14A static is drawing pretty high amps for this motor. But again I don't fly WOT and it comes down barely warm in a typical flight. The 1047 is safest depending on how you fly. Be sure to check the amps in your setup and check the motor/esc/battery temperatures on the first few flights to be sure.

FYI, I have an 1147 on in the video.
