Bazin Aéroplane à ailes battantes
Albert Bazin built a series of gliders from 1904 up to 1907. In 1907 he built this ornithopter with a 12 hp three-cylinder engine. It had no rudder, since the machine "was built to fly straight forward, the shortest distance between one point and another being the straight line". The area of the different wings could be extended and decreased, thereby achieving lateral control. It was apparently tested suspended from a wire.
