Breguet HU-2, HU-3 1913

Postby schneiderman » Wed Sep 08, 2010 10:19 am

Can anyone enlighten me as to how the controls worked on the Breguet 2- and 3-float aircraft that were entered for the 1913 hydro-aeroplane meet? I cannot find any good quality photos or clear plans and it is a mystery to be how the all-moving, balljoint-mounted tailplane connects to the large control column and wheel in the cockpit. Also some sources suggest that the wing was flexible but lacked warp controls, how does that work? Apparently it did as the aircraft was considered robust and quite successful at the time

Cheers
