Caption: Motor glider. View of a Stimme S-10 motor glider during powered flight. A motor glider is a glider which has a small engine fitted that allows it to take-off unaided or extend its range. In this German design, the propeller is just behind the nose fairing. When the engine is turned off, the propeller blades retract and the fairing closes to give the best aerodynamic efficiency. This version of the S-10 has small pods under the wings carrying surveillance equipment as is promoted as a low-cost, low-observable reconnaissance platform. Photographed at the MAKS 2007 air show near Moscow, Russia.
