I was going to suggest the Stumax fan, because it sounds sooo awesome. But it ain't cheap (~700 bucks with motor), and its too big to fit in your pods (110mm i believe).
I actually like the idea of adding 4 x 90mm EDF units and using them on the ground for steering. You could hook up the throttle to the dual side levers on the 9303 radio and have assisted steering with your two index fingers. Likewise in the event something happened to one of the props and you had to bring all the engines down, you'd have 30 lbs of thrust available to help perform a decent landing...

Addded cost, about $2,250
