In 1911 Vlaicu built a second plane which he flew in several cities in the Kingdom, in major tournaments.
 
The most distinguishing feature was the now fully enclosed nacelle. In front of the nacelle was a Gnôme 7-cylinder rotary engine delivering 50 hp, driving the two propellers via a chain. This machine participated in the June 1912 competition at Aspern flying field at Vienna.
 
He participated in the war during the Balkan campaign, where he performed some aerial observation missions.
