That is a great motor - but you will want to prop it up a bit. Here would be two setups that would maximize the motor combo you have without going over the 10A limit of your ESC:

6:1 gearing and a 10x7APC prop
5:1 gearing and a 9x6APC prop

You could go with a 10x4.7 on 6:1 but it would slow it down quite a bit. That plane needs alot of airspeed.

Yep, I agree. Put on a 10x7 APC SF for the setup you have. It should put you around 8 1/2 amps @ WOT, give or take a little depending on your altitude.
