Schleicher (DFS) correct.

"Rhon" correct. Change the "adler".

My previous bird of prey name will give you what you need.

I can't see a prop so it's either a very unusual glider or a pusher prop.

Home-build or kit ?

I can think of other options as well.
Not home built nor kit

Yes, I've just thought it might be a twin or an amphibian.

So I'm looking for twin-pusher, motor glider, twin-engine option and amphibian.

I don't think anything like that can exist.

I'll throw out the twin-engine idea because there's only one indicated in the cockpit.

edit: and amphibian because I can't see any gear operating handle.

I thought it must be strange so I've found a new keyword "unorthodox".

One has come up which fits - just checking further.

I have searched under unorthodox motor gliders and can only find two which have side-by-side seating.

One is the eGenius, which is electrically powered so it isn't that.

The other is called a Brditschka, which I've never heard of.

Get the country and manufacturer then lose it to someone else.
