The ADI Condor was a motor glider of unusual configuration built in the United States in 1981. While most motor gliders follow traditional sailplane layout, the Condor was of pod-and-boom configuration, with a pusher propeller at the rear of the central nacelle that seated the pilot and passenger in tandem. The single example of the aircraft was destroyed in a crash in late 1982 after an engine failure.
Of composite construction, the Condor was powered by a modified VW engine and had a wing area of 130 ft² (12 m²).
