Flying Flea

 

 

When the "Flying Flea" first made its appearance in this country, with its revolutionary methods of construction and control, there were many who doubted whether it could ever be a success and who were not sure of the wisdom of adopting such an unorthodox design. 

However the "Flea" movement spread with great rapidity and hundreds of these diminutive little machines were built in all parts of the country. 

Then came disillusion: accident followed accident, some were fatal, many merely resulted in a few cuts and bruises, though in most cases the machines suffered considerable damage. 

Practically all flying "Fleas" were first suspended and later abandoned.
