History
     
Built in 1929, designed by Allerding, Koch
The "Schnecke" was a construction of the Akaflieg with the design goal of a low-speed aeroplane.  In the twenties,  it was still designed as a 2-struts, braced biplane, like designs familiar from the World War I
The flyable speed range of the "Schnecke" was enormous. The top speed was more than four times as high as the minimum speed. On landing, the aircraft could be brought to a halt after a roll distance of about 10 m. The aircraft received its type certificate on 26/03/1931.
