I have doubts about these data:
Empty weight vs. takeoff weight with 200 sq ft wing area, about 10# per sq ft!
Ceiling of 26,600 ft unlikely in 1918, without boost.
Cruise speed of 50mph? Maybe landing speed...
But it's an interesting design. The absence of wires and extensive struts suggests a higher cruise and top speed.

Is the 50 mph cruise speed a mistake?
Thanks for your response!

I would appreciate any info you could give me about this aircraft. I came in contact with it at the air-space museum in DC but no one including Dornier can supply information.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
