The Dornier Do 132 was innovative in its use of a tip drive. However although a full size mock up was built, and tested in a wind tunnel as pictured, the type was never built as a functional production aircraft.

The DO 132 was a tip drive and had great potential. Tried to purchase the rights back in the early seventies but the Dorner people tryied "playing games" and no serious barganing went on.

Do you have any comments ?
