I have a Mini-Edge set up similar to yours, except I am running a 12x6 eprop and a CC25 ESC. Works great. Your 10x3.8 will work as well, but may lack a bit in "punch". Try to get a amp reading with whatever you go with and do not be worried about the specs on the 450. They are way under rated. I have flown that motor easily in the 20A range with no heating of the motor.

Oh great are the days when my takeoffs equal my landings!!!

Your controller seems a bit small. I have a Phoenix 35 with the same model and the guys were saying I should have got a bigger one with my HiMax. Got it at Christmas but haven't flown it yet. Have a wattmeter and it will easily draw well over 20 amps with a 10-5 APC. By all means get a wattmeter.

Ever since I learned to fly better, I've had a lot less radio problems!
