single 3850(MC) how many AP can control

Hi All now i testing about 3850.. 

i have some question about 3850

1. how many APs can control in single 3850(MC)

    if we buy Single 3850(48port) then can we use all port for AP?

2. build a MC-MA Wireless environment, If MC goes down MA Can still working without MC?(is there kind of NSF?)

3. for example MC has a AP and MA has a AP. then we can see ap only each 3850. how we can management whole APs

    Prime infrastructure can see whole APs, is this only way ?. I think this is not good for management Wireless.

4. If MA has over two APs(AP1, AP2),  User1 connected AP1, User2 connected AP2.

    User1 need to connect with User2(FTP or something) , User1,2 can connect directly? without through of MC




                               AP1          AP2

                                 |                  |

                            user1           user2


 if you have any answer plz talk to me.

thank you.
