Some of them probably 'could' be used if you were determined, but the cheap ones you refer to will invariably be low quality brushed motors and old tech NiCd batteries which are far heavier and have less performance than the brushless motors and LiPos we almost exclusively use in RC planes these days.

Car ESC's are also generally not very well suited to RC planes because cars have reverse, which is a big problem if engaged in flight!
