While I was in Radio Shack picking up some shrink wrap and flux, I stumbled over this tiny little brushless motor for $12.99. Here are the details:

Radio Shack Item #: 273-240
UPC: 0-40293-10087-2

Item Name: 12VDC Micro Fan Brushless

Rated Voltage: 12vdc
Volt Range: 10.8 - 13.2 vdc
Rotation Speed: 6500 rpm +/- 10%
Rated Current: 0.13A (130ma) max @ 12vdc
Rated Power: 1.56 watts max @ 12vdc
Bearing Type: Sleeve
Diamater of Motor: about the size of a nickle

So I was wondering would this motor work as a tail motor? It is very small and very light weight?

What do you veterans think?

Brushless fans are generally single phase low torque motors which are not of much use for anything other than cooling. The normal brushless or even brushed motors used for RC helis and planes are 3-phase and deliver an order of magnitude more torque than the single phase fan motors.

Would have been nice,but these motors just do not have enough thrust.
