I disagree entirely. That gearmotor will have way more torque than any standard PC fan motor. it's geared down. That's why they call it a gear motor. I see absolutely no reason why it would not work. Much would depend on the size of the propeller, but I don't think it would have to be a huge one to get the job done. In any case, the $6.65 price tag makes the risk rather trivial. I'd give it a try.
