AMOORE monoplane (Frank Amoore, Dover, Kent and 4 City Rd., London EC)
This machine was under construction late in 1913 and early 1914, but appears not to have been completed. It incorporated a lateral pendulum arrangement, to maintain the occupant in a perpendicular attitude, by controlling the seat, which swung below the mainplane. This movement, relative to the airframe, automatically operated the ailerons to correct the attitude of the aircraft. The construction was mainly of light steel tubing. British patent No.29252 of 1912 refers.
The system was similar to that patented in France and Britain by Mons J.A. Moreau No.9445/1911, except that the Moreau Aerostable system operated in the longitudinal sense.
Power: 80hp Dutheil-Chalmers either four- or six-cylinder water-cooled.
