Normally, they are used in flying wings as a pusher motor. You can usually buy the body parts for Parkzone Stryker at your local hobby or direct from Horizon Hobby

Re: mega 16-15-3

It is good for four to six inch props, but it was designed for high RPM (55,000 max) use in Ducted Fans sized 50 - 75mm.
I used one to push my 24 inch F-15 around. The 6X4 used 25A with twin 2S1500(8C), this loaded the motor to about 80%. Pretty hot for a park-jet back then.
The micro-jet and fun-jet are very possible. 4.75x4.75 3S2200 35A MAX with lots of cooling. There are some nice YouTube clips.
Good Luck and let us know what you're going with.
