Rogo-SIMX-01
 
Aircraft SIM X was designed by Sima Milutinovic at the beginning of the 1936, drawing on the positive experiences of his previous SIM-II and SIM-VIII.The Rogozarski SIM-X (Serbian: Рогожарски СИМ-X) was a 1936s Yugoslav Sports and tourist plane and for basic training of military pilots. It was designed and built at the Rogožarski factory in Belgrade.

The prototype aircraft was built at Rogožarski from August until the end of the 1936. The first test flight took place on 1936. The SIM X had parasol monoplane with one engine, a wooden two blade propeller, with two crew members in tandem. The aircraft was registered YU-PDY.

While the plane was designed for three types of engine mounting: Walter NZR 120 hp, Siemens 110 hp and Gypsy Major 120 hp: the production incorporated a Walter NZR 120 hp air-cooled radial with reduction gear which was produced locally by Vlajković in Belgrade. The plane was mostly wooden construction, the fuselage of elliptical cross-section made entirely of wood covered with plywood, and the wings made of wood covered with cloth, with rounded ends. On each side, the wings are supported by a pair of inclined struts from the fuselage. The fuel tank was located in the central part between the wings. Landing gear was fixed, no axles, completely made of steel pipe.
