Did you try plugging it in to motocalc? I did a quick check,didn't see that motor listed, may have to manually plug in the numbers.

Music Publisher> My mini piper is powered by Astro 10 brushless motor that swings a 5.5 x 4 Masterscrew prop. I use ESC Phoenix 10 and Thunder Power 2C 1320 mah. By applying full throttle, the current draw is about 6 amps when I plug in my ampmeter. I would say that this powerplant is a good choice for the mini piper. The Astro 10 has more than enough power to keep this little plane in the air. Ground take off is also awsome with the tail wheel mounted in the back. The flight lasts about 22 minutes on a calm day with some throttle management. I think you should also get a decent result by using the Himaxx brushless motor if you choose the right prop and batteries. I suggest that you start with 7 cells or 2C lithium pack instead of 8 cells. In addition, the stock prop should not be used with the himaxx because it is not designed for brushless motor.
