Arthur Stentzel was the inventor of a flying machine which received some publicity in the 1890s.
His aircraft was bird-like, with a propeller. (It might be said to resemble Ader's designs, such as Avion III.) He told the newspaper in 1897 that he would be able to fly if only he had funding to built a more efficient motor.
