Hello folks.

I need to pick your brains. Here is the link to a British pathe video from 1932 featuring a quirky monoplane:


Can anyone identify it?

A quick search of the registration from the video throws up the possibility that this might be a Monocoupe , however I can't pinpoint the exact model. It looks deceptively close to a Monocoach, however all other images for that model show a curvy vertical stabilizer, while this one seems to have a square one. But then again, this one seems to be modified with some kinda rudimentary autopilot, so it's possible the empennage could've been modified as well. Thanks for posting this anyway, I enjoyed the hunt

Looks like a Curtiss Robin, with extra Parts   Looks like the Tail Reg is X-3275

Thanks. I think you're right.

I reckon that was just a temporary reg denoting it's experimental status. A google search didn't find anything.
