R.E.P. II aircraft

Robert Esnault-Pelterie may not have designed the most gorgeous aircraft, but his aircraft contained some important innovations. The method of controlling an aircraft in the air differed wildly between different designs, but Esnault-Pelterie's system was the first standardised system (stick and rudder pedals) which is still in use to this day.
