These tandem wing aircraft feature a large speed range, stall resistant, and spin proof. Both wings lift and being small size, minimal space is needed to build. Landing gear arrangement: tail dragger or tri-gear.
Options include swept fin and rudder.

Falconar devised design changes for easier construction, modern materials, Delrin bearings, tri-gear and HIPEC® covering.

Rodolphe Grunberg has redrawn the 1940s HM.293 plans, updated them for 1990s materials, and fitted new light weight engines. Over 40 Grunberg HM.293s were reported either flying or close to completition in France in 1998.
