Clement Ader's own sketch of his Eole of 1890 shows its bat-like wings, feather-bladed single propeller and the caterpillar-track undercarriage that the inventor considered fitting instead of wheels. The fan-like protrusion on top of the fuselage is the radiator for its 20hp steam engine.

Clement Ader's Eole; the complex controls and bird-like structure show clearly in this single-propeller machine. (From drawings in Octave Progress in Flying Machines)
