Let's Play "What's that motor"

Thought we would have some fun with this one. Just posted a video on the website (www.boomerseflight.com) named Mystery SS. The plane is a stock Slow Stick except for the motor. The object after watching the video is to identify the motor used to power the plane. To make it a little more interesting I will give a 2S 1100 Polyquest Lipo to the first 2 people that correctly identify the motor used.
*************************
RULES:
One guess per person.
*****************************
That's it. I will review the answers Sunday, Dec 4 and announce the winners if any.
Clue: The motor used is commercially available. And it is not off of any of my wife's household appliances as has been suggested already!
Have Fun!

Well I'm guessing from motors that you've had in the past and the general quietness of it, It's a Nippy 1812/100, as I also own one and it sounds similar when ran But then I could be quite wrong. BTW my Big Rake Brisfit will be flying on this same motor

OK Guys guess we need another Rule! When you publish your guess please be specific on what motor IE: a Himax XXXXX not just a HiMax or a GWS 300C-D not just a GWS Motor! If you have posted a general guess please qualify your guess with the actual motor name. Thanks.
