Motor/ESC combination for Compy 300 FP?

On they recommend the AKE 450R35LT (w/ 10T) or 400DH (w/ 9T) motor and Otter 25A ESC for the regular Compy 300 (collective pitch).

Would this work well for a FP Compy? What motor/ESC combos work well to give high headspeed and decent flight times?

Also, which RX is easier to wire up in this heli, a Spektrum AR6100 or AR6100e (end pins)?

So far, on my fp compy, I'm pretty happy with my HDX 4200kv from heli direct. I'm running a super simple 10a on it. I had a hover today at 12 minutes on 1300mah gforce 3s. It was barely warm afterwards too. I'm currently running a 9t pinion, punchout feels really powerful compared to my hbfp on a 4500kv brushless/dd tail on 2s 800mah supersimple lipos.

I haven't gotten past a hover yet though, as I am still trying to set up my tail/servo/gyro configuration.
