Depends on the prop and batt combo. But the answer is likely yes.
Play around with the flight calc linked above and figure out the best setup, otherwise you're going to be depending on someone else to figure things out for ya, and who knows, I might not have any idea what I'm doing!

Eflight Power 32 motor is 800 watts. I know from experience that their motors are more powerful than specs suggest. Even HZ recommends using 60A ESC. but I use 75A ESC. It's better to go slightly above the recommended ampere ESC but not a good idea to go less than recommended size.

You may be lucky and get away with a 50A ESC but that's a big risk IMO. Remember, if you crash a model because of ESC failure then it'd be a big loss + your building time. I think it's not worth the gamble.

Well, it really depends on the setup. A 12x8x3 on 3s only draws 38A. Doesn't seem like a big risk to me. Conversely, a 13x6.5 on 4s draws 52A - a little more iffy.

Both will work. It's up to you.

Click it. Try different setups. Learn. Come back and ask questions.

Good Q. Start at the top an work your way down. Plug is your battery mAh & C rating, then the number of cells. Choose an esc amp rating. Choose your motor brand, then pick the motor model. Finally, choose a prop size. Then check the results. Amps, watts, motor temp, prop pitch speed, and static thrust are all important.
If you have more Q's feel free to ask.

ok I figured it out FINALLY! Thank-you So what do you guys think, should I leave the power 32 in it or should I take it out and put in the Himax?

Good deal I think the main difference between the two is their kv, which means your choice will likely depend on whether you want to run 3s or 4s batts. Both motors are about the same size and can handle loads of power. The Himax is geared more towards 3s batts, and the E-Flite is more for 4s (unless you want to run a three-blade with lots of pitch - like a 12x8x3 on 3s).
Hope that helps,
Josh

I was thinking about getting a 3 blade prop to make it more scale but then will I have to use a 3s?

Nope, not necessarily. Pull up the calc and try this: your power 32 with 4s, 50a esc, and a 12x6x3 electric prop and see what you get.
