Wolfmüller Schlagflügelapparatur
Alois Wolfmüller's "Schlagflügelapparatur", or "Standflugmaschine", dated from December 1901. Powered by an 18 hp three-cylinder engine of Wolfmüller's own design, the ornithopter with three wings in tandem arrangement was apparently able to rise 60 cm off the floor, but was very unstable. It was inspired by an 1868 test-rig of his friend Otto Lilienthal.
