Focke-Achgelis Fa.336
 
After termination of the work on the Fa.330 "Wagtail" it was next decided to transform the Fa.330 into a helicopter with engine. It was soon determined as unfeasible. Instead the Focke Achgelis engineers developed a new helicopter, which received the designation Fa.336. It was a single-seat device with outside features, reminiscent of the Fa.330.
 
Like the Fa.330, the Fa.336 could be stowed away and dismantled in a similar manor. Instead of a swash plate, a new design was applied to increase blade angle. This new design was developed for Focke Achgelis by Mr. Wewoloschky, an engineer who was conscripted to help solve this problem.
 
Deviating from Focke's building principle, the Fa.336 had a tail rotor with horizontal drive shaft. The construction from steel tube corresponded to that of the Fa.330. The Fa.336 remained only a design, because there were very few specialists in the whole design engineering department, and those were divided and indispensable for the care of the Fa.223 and its development.
