Lacking some information here. What type of glider are you flying that you are looking at powering with a pod setup? Model anme , wingspan, all up weight, that sort of thing.
If you do a search here, I am sure you will come up with something. Then the rest of the guys will jump in with their 2 cents worth of information. It has been done.

Here is one idea for for you. Little pricey though.

' but as you said sort of costly,LOL.
another alternative might be a fan unit like this in picture' id really prefere it anyways, it fit better on a Wing... like a zagi or Wildwing. i might just get one an see , rc
