This VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) aircraft project's design, by Weserflug, dates from 1938. The fuselage was fairly conventional, with a standard tail unit. The real difference in this design was the wings, which were hinged and tiltable about halfway along the length of the wings. Mounted on each end of the wing was a nacelle featuring a large diameter propeller. The wing was mounted high on the fuselage so that the propeller would have the necessary ground clearance when the wing was tilted to the in-flight position. A single Daimler-Benz DB 600 series engine was located in the fuselage behind the cockpit and drove both propellers.
