There were two prototypes built the first, described above,and the second flown with a 240 h.p. Siddley Puma engine. Featuring an offset cockpit the plane showed general instability and force landed whilst in competition for a British Civil Transport competition in August 1920,and was eventually scrapped. The first prototype was purchased, rather bizarrely, by Qantas who after reassembling on delivery on 2nd March 1921 promptly crashed it in a landing accident not putting it back in the air for another year. It was totally ill suited to "bush flying" and ended it's days as a chicken coup.
