Duncan Cook Yes Beause the RLM wanted that this ariplanes performs dive attacks like the Stuka. Nonsens.

Wilfried Bogaerts Yep, Flying Zippo isn't a nickname to be proud of. Basically this is a 4 engined aeroplane, each nacelle contains 2 engines coupled to drive 1 prop. This solution caused overheating with a nice campfire as a pesky side effect
Burkhard D Had nothing to do with the dive-bomb requirement.
The basic engines were never really designed to be run in couples feeding a common gearbox and propeller. The inevitable result of high stress and vibration is leaks, cracks and fractures spewing parts and combustible liquids all over the place. This was a good recipe for disaster on may other airplane types.

Holger Kranich But nevertheless, its a beautiful aircraft, i have a soft spot for it. Especially the A6 version!

Holger Kranich And the kit is real fun to build! You just have to take care with the gear and the right angles of it!
