The Lysander was preferred because of it's high wing and fixed undercarriage. This plane was originally designed to take the Perseus engine, but it was not until an early landing accident that that engine was subsequently installed. Two models were produced the latter being fitted with a Taurus for comparative trials.

This machine was evaluated by Sqn Ldr Humble prior to June 1936. He was impressed and recommended it in preference to the Lysander. Does anyone have any further information.
