20k b/w "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.425

Parasol trainer with 60hp 'Cirrus' engine. Plywood skin of the aircraft wing and fuselage provided very clean airdynamic for penalty of minor overweight. Series of successful flights were performed in 1929- 1930, but complete trials never took place.
