RC ducted fan plane Answered

My Mom recently aquired a new blender for christmas and I was able to salvage the very massive motor from it. it is a 120v 430w motor. I want to be able to make it remote control with an esc and some rc gear I have. I need help either creating one or somewhere to buy one that would work with this motor. I could also use arduino to control it if needed but would need a program.

Thanks in advance for all help recieved.

Not sure but that may be an AC motor which runs off of house current? Even if it is a DC motor, the battery pack to power it in a model plane would be pretty heavy. You might be better off in trying to make a hovercraft with regular props much less than trying to get turbine type blades on it. Good luck.
