Really small motor!

Damn this thing is tiny! It's going to be used to convert my annular wing glider into an r/c aircraft. I hope I know what I'm doing!!!
Couldn't figure out how to press the prop into the motor, so I used a drill bit to enlarge the hole, then superglued the prop onto the motor.
The weight of the various components is 16g. The thrust of this motor/prop combo is supposed to be around 44g, so I have very little leeway if I want to get 1:1 thrust/weight ratio.

Here's a short video of it spooling up to 50% throttle, as well as how I wired it up.
