Abstract

THE leading thought in the design of the Do.X. was that to lead to the desired goal only that which had been technically proved could be used. Every kind of “experimenting” was ruled out from the beginning. There is no doubt that through this precaution creative work was, to a certain extent, handicapped. The fact, however, that from the commencement of the tests of the Flying‐Boat, up to their completion, only about one hundred working hours were occupied in alterations, proves, in conjunction with the results achieved, that the plan adopted was correct.
