Get an RC plane without a motor and put that in it.
Otherwise listen to Andy.

That's a bit like saying "I've got a steering wheel, how do I make a car from it".

The motor is usually the third heaviest thing on a model plane :-
Heaviest is the airframe itself, second are the batteries and then comes the motor.  You've then got the servos, receiver and ESC, along with rods and horns etc.
The motor's job is to spin the prop with enough power to give the prop enough thrust to keep the rest of the show in the air and as such it needs the best power to weight ratio you can achieve.

The motor in the picture looks like a standard cheap 'toy' motor and would be nowhere near strong enough to be of any use.  Sorry.

but what motors can u use if u can show a picture
First you need to decide what sort of model you want to make, what shape, and how big, and what to make it of (the lighter the better).  Then you can start thinking what you need to power it.  It's always a tremendous tradeoff between power and time in the air. 
HERE are a load of motors from a UK supplier I've used - Different types for different types and sizes of planes.  The'Blue Wonders' are highly regarded for small models.  (A critical factor is the KV rating - How many thousand RPM they spin per volt applied.)  As a supplier, Hobby King is extremely popular in the US.
I'd suggest you do what I did last summer - Build yourself a NUTBALL.  They're easy to build, easy to fly . . . and easy to repair. There is a lot to learn, but one of these is a really good way to get into aero modelling.  The plans are available on RCGroups (page 2) and the support from the forum (and designer) is excellent.
RCGroups is a great site for learning about RC as well as there are some excellent tutorials there.

And HERE'S the link for the Nutball thread.

A flying plane is unlikely with that type of motor - In general electric motors for aircraft models are in the 50 watts to 250 watt range and super efficient. They have to provide a surprising amount of torque and a reasonable prop speed - perhaps around 3000 RPM.

If your interested in getting into aeromodelling then I would strongly suggest you start by looking at an on line hobby shop and their RTF -Ready to fly or ARTF - almost ready to fly kits. It gives you a far higher chance of success. Example from the UK
