Fuselage - variable-thickness wooden monocoque of oval cross-section. Two-spar wing (plywood skinning) carried ailerons and large-span landing flap. Ailerons and tail controls were covered with fabric. Fixed main undercarriage was fitted with airdynamic fairings. Rubber cord shock absorbers - hidden in the fuselage.
Being of wooden design, Anito-1 was somewhat large for 100hp engine, but clean lines and high assembly quality guaranteed high performance. Strength and reliability of construction were tested in the 1935 (September 5 to 9). Aircraft participated in the circuit flight endurance contest and finished second.
