First Scratch Build

How do you know how much thrust you need and when thrust is not provided in the specs or reviews how do you know what to use? I read somewhere that I can't find something about watts.
I am building a plane for My go pro and want a pusher. I saw a modified version of mikey's rc fpv pusher plane that looked good but don't know how much thrust I need.

Plane
RC Aerial Video Plane - Design (2 min 18 sec)

Motor? http://www.hobbypartz.com/86ma63-2210-1100kv.html
Prop? 10x6 is one of the recommended
Esc 30 Amp

Should this setup work?
