    Capt Jim, are you looking for plans or a kit or a second-hand, flying aircraft?

    Jim, I have seen a number of Fournier RF4d's on the market under that price. They are all powered by a VW conversion however.

    Hey Mark,
    Is there a web site where I can learn more about the Fournier RF4d's--Thanks

    Mark,
    Never mind--I should have done a search first--there is a tremendous amount of information available--I'll be studying it--I've always been interested in a motor glider--but with on aircraft already, could not afford current motor gliders--the Fournier may be the exception.
    Thanks

    Ogar motorglider

    Another option, although a bit more rare, is an Ogar motorglider. Reasonable performance (similar to Fournier RF-5), interesting looks, VW derivitive engine. I've seen them for $15K to $25K.

    The motor glider kit made by Sonex is in your price range with the 120 hp Jabiru. Their ad is on this web site. Maybe you don't want to build.

    There aren't any ads on this site, but here's a link to the Xenos:
