Maxford USA Rumpler Taube 64" Wingspan EP ARTF
The Taube was designed in 1909 by Igo Etrich of Austria-Hungary, and first flew in 1910. It was licensed for serial production by Lohner- Werke in Austria and by Edmund Rumpler in Germany. Like many contemporary aircraft, especially monoplanes, the Taube used wing warping rather than ailerons for roll control, and also warped the rear half of the stabilizer for use as an elevator control surface's function. Only the vertical, twinned triangular rudder surfaces were usually hinged.
Rumpler Taube was the first military aeroplane to be mass-produced in Germany. It was very popular prior to the First World War, and it was also used by the air forces of Italy and Austria-Hungary. On November 1, 1911, Giulio Gavotti, an Italian aviator, dropped the world's first aerial bomb from his Taube monoplane over the Ain Zara oasis in Libya.
