That motor comes with a stick mount . Attach an appropriate size stick 3 or 4 inches long into the stick mount , then hot glue and tape it to the plane with the prop ON the motor so the prop will be straight and centered in the slot . The numbers/writing on the prop should face the front of the plane , then check for the correct turning direction , If it's going the wrong direction , just switch any two of the three wires going from the ESC to the motor .

The type of stick mount that motor from Hobbypartz comes with has a heat sink ( the part with the cooling fins sticking out ) that clamps on to the motor , and another square hole that clamps on to a stick , which is then attached to the plane . If you look at the video on that ( Hobbypartz ) page , you'll see a close-up of the motor/mount/stick etc.

Yes . Works great for smaller , slower planes that have smaller control surfaces .
