Did not know they are still available, cool. Powerpods are certainly easy to make, I made one for my AV Easy Glider, did not need folder prop for this application the motor is always on. To use folder just make the pod a bit longer to accommodate the folding prop. Just used 1/8 ply cutout and firewall with balsa sides, to make it removable you could epoxy to a 1/16 ply base molded to the wing to fit under rubber bands. Puller prop powerpods with about 10deg up will fly the glider nicely with no thrust issues. The pusher versions you see everywhere have serious thrust issues always pushing the nose down on launch. Powerpods are also quite draggy no matter what design, nose mounted motor is much more efficient on a glider.

Thanks, that is the power pod that I have. The box is in a bit rougher shape but the contents seem, while not pristine, to be okay.
