Adams-Farwell Rotary 5 Engine
Designed and built by the Adams Company of Dubuque, Iowa, in 1907, this engine powered three man-lifting experimental helicopters, two designed by Emile Berliner and flown in 1909 and 1910, and one designed by J. Newton Williams and flown in 19019.
The engine is extremely light, and therefore ideal for vertical flight experiments.
