Not sure if this is the right place to post this - but have recently lost my medical and honestly can't afford a carbon-fiber 100K+ motorglider.
Bet there are others like me in this situation. I am going to have to sell my Cessna 172 and am researching what is available in the
motor glider community. I wouldn't mind building one, but I want one with a little more cockpit room than the Xenos.
So - are there any plans available for a motor glider with, maybe a 4130 tube fuselage and aluminum wing - or even a fabric covered wing?
Are there any resources for figuring out how to design a 50+ foot wing; flutter issues scare me to death.
From what little I have been able to find in the past few days - there are not plans available for aircraft like the Fournier RF-5.
Perhaps someone may have more information on these aircraft.Would not mind building a wooden airplane.
I've looked at the Grob's, but the 3000 hour inspection looks like a deal killer.
I would appreciate any input; I may have to end up with the Xenos and widen the fuselage on my own, but I hope that there are some
other alternatives out there to consider.
