Its upper and lower wing were of same span, smaller than M-5. Upper wing warping was used instead of ailerons. It was lower and had different shape of a hull.

M-10 passed all tests, and demonstrated performance better than M-5, with the same engine. After tests M-10 served as a trainer at Baku flight school.
