Electric conversion for a scratch built SG2?

Hello all- I have a SuperGee II I built a while back and I would like to do an E conversion with the plane.
Is there somewhere to get an ideal of how to optimize a motor/controller/battery combination for the plane?

Currently the AUW is 10.5 oz

I would like to use a outrunner with a fold back prop.
I don't mind spending a bit of cash to buy quality gear for the plane. I am not looking to set up a hot rod, just have a motor prop combination to 'relaunch' to height for another glide. I have spend my entire rc career tossing gliders and have really no ideal of where to start with these electric issues.

Thanks

OK- maybe the plane is too obscure to ellicit a response.
Basically this is a 60" DLG and the information on the plane can be found here:

What I will do is cut the nose to install a motor and spinner.
What I am looking for is information on how to appropriately size the motor/controller/battery.
In sizing the motor I mean getting a motor size which is appropriate for the size/weight/performance of this glider.

Thanks all
