The Neal VII biplane, designed by J. V. Neal, who also was responsible for a Bleriot-type monoplane. In general design, the biplane was of the Farman type, but its main point of interest lay in the original system of control, which was evolved primarily to avoid the Wright patents. This was accomplished by means of vertical surfaces hinged at the leading edges to the outer front interplane struts and connected to the "joy-stick." These, in conjunction with the fore and aft elevators, steered as well as balanced the machine alone, and ailerons were unnecessary - those seen in the photograph being fitted as a precaution during trials.
