Great idea but they are expensive for a $1.50 motor and prop

And the price for the ones that are controlled by a smart phone--$40! But the next time someone kills one of those micro-drones it's organ-harvesting time.

You can buy those motors at Banggood for pennies they are tail rotor motors.
May be we could have a new category for paper planes.
These are phone vibrator motors, very cheap.

Any idea of what capacitor was needed? The motors are 1.5 volt.

Wouldn't it make more sense for the motors to run when the nose of the plane points down rather than up?
