And did anyone heard about Heise ?.
Herbert Gropp studied in Chemnitz and tried to build a small plane (don´t know if it has ever flown). He has an interesting CV which is covered by Lemke in an small book. Very interesting. Gropp worked together with Villinger (Mufli) had known Grönhoff and others, and worked for DKW (cars and motorcycles) and finally for Heinkel. He was also involved to some extend in the Chemnitz C-10 powered glider. I think in the developement of its prop. At DKW he did some research in aerodynamic covering of motorcycles. He died in 1940 on a testflight with the He-177 V2 (CD+RQ) at Graal at the Baltic Sea. Together with him the son of Oscar Ursinus (Fritjof Ursinus) died too.
