Default Full size sailplane with a retractable turbine at AMA Expo

Does anyone have contact info on the owner of the full size sailplane with a retractable turbine on display at the 2016. AMA Expo in Ontario. Ca?

Thanks, Wayne

My Mistake. it's not a full size glider, but a very large r/c model! I should have looked at the pics I took before I posted. I have a friend the has installed 2 P200's on a full size S-26 glider. they have not flown it yet. If it was full size, they wanted to talk to the owner.

It's an EDF, it was on the table between MKS and Soaring USA

Looks like a B500F would be a better option on that FS glider - approved for manned aircraft too ;-)
