Electric Motor Recommendation

I have a small glider that I want to convert to a motor glider. The wing span is 58", ~348 square inches. The estimated total weight with motor, battery and everything should be 18 ounces. The max motor diameter should be 7/8". I am looking for suggestions to select a motor, ESC, battery and folding prop combination to power this glider.

Thanks,
Dan

I used to fly an EasyStar with a Keda 20-40-31L inrunner (20mm OD). A 6x3 prop, 3s 850 pack and a 10-12A ESC will give you adequate climb.
