Tański Łątka / Dragonfly
 
 Tanski-Latka
 
In 1909 Czesław Tański started design works on an aircraft with longitudinal axis steering done by change of the angle-of-attack of the whole wing. Construction lasted until 1911 and in autumn of that year, the airplane, named Łątka (Dragonfly) underwent trials at Warsaw's Mokotów airfield. Unfortunately, Tański, witnessing numerous undercarriage failures on other aircraft, designed very heavy one for his aircraft, which resulted in aircraft - powered by relatively weak Anzani engine - never managed to take off the ground.
