Raoul Vendôme produced at least 14 distinct monoplanes and biplanes starting 1906, three of which were associated with the company Odier and Vendôme. The bird-like No. 2 of 1908 used two independent levers to warp the main wings either in the same or contrary sense and had a flexible wooden tractor screw. The No. 3 monoplane of 1909 featured double-surfaced wings set at a slight dihedral angle; at the extremities of the wings, hinged tips were attached. 1914 saw a military monoplane. The final design, an observation biplane of 1916, featured two Gnôme engines in the fuselage driving outboard propellers.
