Looking for motor/gearbox with 1.5 to 2 oz of thrust

I am looking for a very small, and light hopefully around 1/2 oz motor/gearbox set up that puts out 1.5 to 2 oz of thrust. Does anyone know of any out there?
Thanks

Thanks

There are a large number of lightweight combinations here that will give the thrust you want:

Here's what I have that are commercially available, listed in the order of increasing current consumption:

Astroflight Firefly (4:1, 16:1; 0.5A)
DC5-2.4 (several gear ratios available; <1A)
Dual-Geared B2/N20 (4.2:1; >1A)


Which one you should buy (especially the gearing) depends on the flyer you want to put in on.
