Hello FB, It does look "Storchie", it was meant to have the same purpose.
Not a Fieseler or Aero, though.

Hi RR, Not Serb / Yugoslavian... West, further West....
I do think it is a one piece tail.

I'm guessing Spanish or French. I don't reckon from the Americas?

3 prototypes were built within the same timeframe of the Fieseler Storch production.

That oughtta narrow it down more.

Edit: Morning SincoTC, The Bellanca YO-50 it is.



Open House per SincoTC

Coffee time and still OH, so I'll take it back!

Google "paddle wing aircraft", RR. In the images It should give you the The Rohrbach Cyclogyro: 1933

Edit: Make that the Platt’s Cyclogyro. Open house if correct.

Nice tip Karlark, but it's not a Rohrbach Cyclogyro

Edit: I see you've recognised the different tail shape

It is the Platt Cyclogyro

Karlark had control

Edit2: Bugger; he's gone and requested Open House

Edit3: Now RR has gone too, I'm all alone but at least I can go home now

Sorry to run earlier Sinco, but I was tasked with an urgent helical auger inquiry request at work, right after the cyclogyro conundrum! How weird is that?

This should be an easy one if anyone is around;



Edit: G'nite, out.

Hi Martin,

Sorry mate, I've been up to my eyes in it today, I looked in at afternoon coffee break and saw about three lights on I recognised and thought I might find a challenge up when I finished work, but it seems not.

Thanks once again to Mel for his great efforts in maintaining the lists !

It look like Mel's post may have been a timely reminder eh Martin , (at least you realised before some bugger pointed it out)

Got another mate?

Edit: I see your light is out, so I guess you haven't. I've got to be heading off home soon, but will try and sort a challenge out before I go, or at least as soon as I get home. But in the meantime, if there are any lurkers out there, it still is an Open House!
