Fieseler Fi 1, 2, 3, 4 и 5

   Первый успех пришел только к самолету F 5 - двухместному учебно-тренировочному и туристическому самолету, представлявшему собой свободнонесущий низкоплан смешанной конструкции, с частично полотняной обшивкой. Хвостовое оперение - обычное расчалочное, шасси - трехопорное неубирающееся, с хвостовым костылем, а в состав силовой установки включили рядный двигатель Hirth HM.60. Фюзеляж имел две закрытые кабины, управление было полностью дублированным. Задняя часть крыла по всему размаху имела закрылки, внешние секции которых могли работать дифференциально, исполняя роль элеронов.

   HERR GERHARD FIESLER, who is well known in England for his aerobatics at low altitudes, and who last year acquired control of the firm of Kegel-Flugzeugbau of Kassel, has recently produced a new light aeroplane. Named the "Fieseler 5," it is a two-seater cantilever low-wing monoplane fitted with a 60-h.p. Hirth HM 60 engine. A 78-h.p. Hirth HM 6R engine can also be fitted if desired, without any structural alterations.
   The wings are trapezoidal in shape and taper outwards, the leading edge sloping backwards while the trailing edge is straight. The folding wings, of wooden construction, have two double T-section spars, and are covered up to the rear spar with plywood to obtain sufficient torsional strength. Two slotted flaps are fitted to the trailing edge of each plane, the outer of which serves as an aileron. These flaps can be locked in any position from the cockpit.
   The undercarriage comprises two vertical legs placed well forward of the centre of gravity, and fitted with rubber and oleo shock absorbers. The low-pressure balloon wheels run in forks, and brakes are fitted.
   The engine housing is partitioned off from the rest of the fuselage by a fireproof bulkhead behind which are the aluminium fuel and oil tanks, which hold sufficient fuel for 370 miles.
   The joystick is mounted on ball bearings and the control surfaces operated by cables and push rods. The elevators consist of a surface of wood with plywood covering and are adjustable from the cockpit. The tail is braced to the lower edge of the fuselage and connected to the steel tube tail fin by cables. All control surfaces are fitted with ball bearings.
   It is claimed that this little machine is very manoeuvrable, comes out of a spin very easily, and can be changed from a right-hand spin to a left-hand spin by use of the rudder bar alone.
   We are indebted to Shell Aviation News for the details and illustrations of this machine.
   The characteristics of the ''Fiesler 5'' are :- Span, 32-8 ft.; overall length, 21-6 ft.; wing area. 146 sq. ft.; weight empty, 750 lb.; disposable load, 595 lb.; weight loaded, 1,345 lb.; wing loading, 9-2 lb. a sq. ft.
   Performance (with Hirth H.M. 60 Engine): Fuel consumption, 3-84 gals, per hour; oil consumption, 19 gals, per hour; power loading, 19-2 lb. per h.p.; max. speed, 118 m.p.h.; landing speed, 40 m.p.h.; climb to 3,280 ft., 5-5 min.; service ceiling, 15,420 ft.; range, 373 miles.
   With Hirth H.M. 60R Engine: Maximum speed, 130 m.p.h.; landing speed, 40 m.p.h.; climb to 3,280 ft., 4-8 min.; service ceiling, 16,730 ft.; range, 373 miles.

Аэродинамически чистые обводы Fieseler F 5 - наглядное доказательство того, что проектировавший его специалист был высококлассным авиаконструктором. Крыло имело на задней кромке закрылки по всему размаху, внешние их секции работали дифференциально как элероны.

The Dutch De Schelde with Gypsy Major engine was unfortunately eliminated in the heats. The German Fieseler F.5.R., seen nearer to the hangar, suffered a similar fate.
Between heats and final mechanics tinkered, while spectators watched demonstrations of the Wicko, seen flying above, the Porterfield "70" and the German Fieseler with 70 h.p. Hirth engine.
Of the two machines shown in 3 that in the background is the Messerschmitt M.31, a most graceful-looking monoplane, while in the foreground is the new Fieseler 4 with Argus AS 16 horizontally-opposed engine.
