The fourth Russian aircraft to take off.
First aircraft in the world to use interceptors 9airbrakes) to assist the turn. Small (0.2m2) surfaces were installed on the upper side of wingtips. Unfortunately this solution was not good for underpowered aircraft. It was capable to cover only 100m, and any additional drag forced aircraft down.
After few trials interceptors were replaced by ailerons, and few flights up to 200m long at altitude 2m were performed.
Landing gear, mounted on V-struts and long axis, was also very advanced for 1910.
