The photograph of G Leforestier's No 1 shows a large frail triangular box-kite arrangement set diagonally on edge above a 4-wheeled cart with a small motor and tractor propeller inside it. From the sides of the kite protruded each side a large triangular wing, seemingly formed of fabric stretched across the frame outline. A later machine by this designer was much more polished, a Bleriot XI copy, with a chopped-off rectangular rudder, a pair of long thin skids forward, and a single pylon coupled with a single inverted V.
