The Rondo is fine or any 15 amp ESC will work fine. (I like Castle Creations)
I would figure out a way to cool it though. Very little airflow in the Terry.

If you are using the s400 6v like they said, the Jeti 10 is good, and the prices just dropped at HOBBY LOBBY. TOM

I use a Kontronik Rondo 400 in mine and it works very well and makes the hookup and battery swap very easy. This is the kind that connects directly to the back of the motor.
Great unit for $25, cheaper than anything else for excellent quality.

I would use at least 15Amp ESC. I think 10 Amp is pushing it. Also depends on how many cells and what prop you are planning to use. I checked my S400 with 6x3 prop and 7 cells
and it pulls 11 Amp static.

I'm flying my Terry with a CC Pixie 14 which works great. I have a Gunther prop and thye motor and ESC do not get hot. I have put 6 batt's (500AR's and 600AE's) through it with hardly a rest. I fly with 4 CC ESC's and I think they have all of the other's beat. Small, affordable, good features, no setup and reliable.

Given the right conditions the Terry will thermal last Monday I had a 35 min flight on a friend's Terry. I gave it to him at 400 ft and the boomer took him to close to 600 and came close to loosing it.

BTW: It did have a rondo esc, 7x600 mah's, s400 6v motor. Pretty much stock except for .54 oz fiberglass on the nose area. Rudde response is pretty sluggish though.
