Sclaves 1910 Biplane
This tractor French biplane, constructed of metal pipes and an abundance of wire bracing, powered by an acetylene motor was tested at Amberieu in 1910 by a man from Lyon named Sclaves. At least one photo shows a 50 hp Prini-Berthaud engine. The rectangular wings were braced entirely by one pair of outboard struts on each side and wires from double kingposts on top. The heavy forward box structure seemed made of pipes; the rear fuselage was uncovered. The two wheels were castering.
