Airplane by S.K.Dzhevetsky

"History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.128;

Two-seat monoplane tandem, transitional to Canard. Rear wing carried no ailerons. Small rudders were located on the wingtips, while tailfin was in the middle. Foreplane (of the smaller size) served as both ailerons and elevators, were moving as a whole piece. Later this term 'slab controls' will be invented... but not the concept.

Aircraft was demonstrated on Paris Exhibition and tested with 70hp 'Labor' engine in 1912. No extraordinary results demonstrated, and it was re-engined with 80hp 'Gnome' in 1914... and abandoned.
