Like the De Havilland Humming Bird and the Gloster Gannet, the Vignet was built for the Lympne trials. Like these other aeroplanes it was restricted to the use of a 750 cc engine and there lay the rub. It was later advertised that it could be fitted with other engines, like the Bristol Cherub, but no record of any engine change exists. Only one was built and this was de- registered in 1929.
