02/28/2009. This was a side by side two-seater constructed along the lines of an automobile for comfort. The top of the cabin consisted of a raised hood, which gave perfect visibility in all directions. The wings could be folded and were constructed entirely of wood and covered with plywood, while the fuselage framework was constructed of duralumin tubing, largely covered with duralumin sheet, the rest with plywood. The landing gear had split-axles with independent wheels and oleo-pneumatic shock absorbers. Engine was a 95 hp Renault.
