Kasyanenko-4 (20k b/w) "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.80

Probably the first light aircraft built with mass use in mind. It was powered by 15hp engine.

Mid-wing monoplane of very advanced design could fly well, but engine was too weak and Takeoff Roll was too long.

Aircraft was tested by P.N.Nesterov, who was already a prominent pilot.
