Default 13.00 speed control, batteries motor from walmart?

Hi all
I have an idea. My wife bought a homedic back messager from walmart for 13 bucks. There is 2 speeds to it. low and fast.
i was thinking of buying another one of these and putting it in an electric foamie. would this work. The batteries last for about 20 minutes if left on. The rpms look sufficient enough to swing a prop. hell if it swings the lead counter weight for vibrations it should swing a prop.i think it will work. downside is only 2 speeds . oh well, i fly myt glows full throttle all of the time anyway.
what do you guys think.

guntop,

Had the same idea, only using a cheepo cordless drill, using the linear speed control, motor, and NiCads. It worked, but was a little heavy.

Just be sure to make up a good story for when your wife asks "honey, have you seen my messager?"
