50c will be able to handle the high current draw better

not too much different, I think, but if you want to get more power may choose 50C not 40C

Well the 50C option will allow you to pull 110 amps. The 40C option will only allow you to draw 88 amps. Check to see how many amps your motor draws. (Use motocalc) That will get you started to answer your question.

The only application I can think of where you could actually pull a burst of 40 to 50C is with a hot liner sailplane, where motor runs are measured in seconds, not minutes. An edf model that pulled anywhere near 40C at WOT will have very short flight times.
