Focke Achgelis FA 330 Bachstelze, Germany, 1938 , Unpowered rotary wing aircraft for use from submarines 

 

By the low height of submarines, the observation radius of subs was very limited. The Bachstelze should carry an observer into a better observation position, so the radius was greatly enhanced. The Bachstelze is without propulsion so it was dragged by the U-boat very much the same than today's paraglider being towed by boats at the beach. The Bachstelze's design allowed the crew to take her apart and stow it in the U-Boat. Every part was sized so it could pass the small hatches. A disadvantage was that when the U-Boot was attacked while the Bachstelze was outside, it's pilot and the apparatus was lost.

 
 

Nagler-Rolz NR 54, Germany, 1938 , Single seat ultralight helicopter 

 

Bruno Nagler and Frank Rolz designed this extreme light single-seat helicopter. To reduce weight, two small single-piston engines have been mounted on the rotor blades.
