Like u win almost twice the amount you buyin with, so if you'd 4-table for an hour, you'd play around 30 games?
let's say you win 25 of those, then you'd make 25x 1.30 - 5x1.50 = 25$ an hour.
Is this reasonable? Or is luck to much of a factor?
It is indeed possible. And not just on Pokerstars. I know guys who personally do this, even from the USA still. Their approach is to multi-site and sit a wide variety of tables and limits looking for fishy action. Playing as much volume as they can.
However, as other posters have said, winning 25/30 is not realistic by any means. Depending on the stakes your play, much of your profit could come in the form of SN/SNE benefits.
Like anything else, requires discipline and skill to succeed
