Model flying machine 'No 10'

Flying machine with metal tube for the fuselage, hinged wings covered with brown paper near front and larger rectangular running the length of the body. Large wing has five cross struts mounted in a wide "V" form, supporting its paper covering. A wooden rod protrudes from the nose and has strings attached that brace the flapping wings. Mounted above the wing hinges on the body is a metal cylinder with one piston on the side. A metal arm links the piston rod to the proper left wing hinge. The metal fuselage ends at the third wing segment and a wooden rod extends to the end of the main wing.
