A 'duck' scheme aircraft, first flown Fall 1912. The second flight ended with non-fatal crash. During repairs a lot of improvements were introduced.
Under designation 'Canard-1bis' aircraft was flown more than 30 times since March 1913. It had good performance, but flight duration and ceiling were limited by unreliable (worn) engine.
In 1914 A.V.Shiukov started project of similar aircraft intended for military use. Designed for 80hp Gnome engine, 'Canard-2' carried twin nose fins for unobscured pilot's sight and machinegun installation. Assembly was cancelled when designer was drafted to military service.
