2. The Ago Racing Monoplane
is in some respects reminiscent of the Morane. It is - which is unusual for a German machine - a single-seater but otherwise incorporates many of the features of the biplane. The rectangular section fuselage tapers to a horizontal knife edge at the rear and runs to a point in the nose of the machine where is accommodated the engine - a 150 h.p. Argus. As frequently seen on modern German aeroplanes, the radiator is mounted above the engine. The chassis is of a very simple form and consists essentially of two pairs of tubes bent in the form of a U from which is slung the tubular axle. Wing warping is employed for lateral control, the warp cables being taken to a lower pylon of steel tubes whilst the upper bracing cables are secured to the top of a similar pylon resting on the upper longerons of the fuselage.
