Wisenant Airplane
 
 Wisen-Airpl-01
 
A 1920 experimental single place, open cockpit mid-wing monoplane with wings mounted in a folded-back manner above two outboard 7' propellers, shaft-driven by a 90hp Maximotor (later replaced by 300hp Hisso).
 
The stability of this design was proved in low-level test flights, and offered a 1:28 glide ratio and spin-proof characterictics. Twin tails, with elevators serving also as ailerons for banking. Although the War Department reportedly expressed interest, nothing came of the novel concept.
 
 Wisen-Airpl-02

The War Dept assumed security and forbade any publicity.
