Watson Biplane No. 1

  An unusual form of lateral control was originated by Preston A. Watson, an early Scottish flying enthusiast, who incorporated it in his biplane, which was built in either late 1908 or early 1909. The upper wings were arranged to rock sideways by means of a hanging control stick, and this was expected to help the machine to maintain its equilibrium. A four-cylinder horizontally-opposed Dutheil-Chalmers engine was fitted before the aircraft was dismantled and reconstructed during 1910 as a glider for the Dundee Aero Club.
