Batman Grapple Gun Help! Answered

So for awhile now I've wanted to make the batman grapple gun with all the features, including the ability to pull you up after the rope is launched. The only piece of the puzzle i need help on is finding the right motor to use in my project. In a Colin Furze video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arbNxONg88c) he used a drill motor but it was almost to slow, any thoughts from anyone?

if u need a lot of power from a small motor, overvolt it. Double the spec voltage. It'll get you out of peril once. Then u throw out the motor. Replace it for yer next adventure. U r a billionaire, right?

since a lot of motor failure is heat (cooking insulation off the windings) pack the motor in dry ice (or liquid N2) 10 min bfore ascent.

I have a vague recollection of a Mythbusters episode where they found that if you could lift the grapple gun it couldn't lift you?

I just looked that episode up actually, they used a 36000 RPM motor and some speed reducers that actually worked, but it isn't quit small enough
