I found a perfect 6v motor in a old RC car, and it's perfect because is small and powerfull for what I want
may i suggest something? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_index.asp it has cheap motors, props, and other things for a uav. here is a link for the products im deciding to buy http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_showCart.asp?idproduct=9470&lasturl=/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=9470. i would suggest buying motors and props instead of using ones found around the house.hope this helps,Patrickedit- can i have the weight of the plane and trust of the motors+props? thanks
As for measuring thrust, you have a scale, so zero out the scale while the motor is on the scale, run the motor and see how much it "weighs" to get the thrust

...add the motor and prop onto it, weigh it...
