The prototype was powered by an unsupercharged 500+ hp Curtiss Conqueror. A later model was configured with a Rolls-Royce Kestrel of 600 hp and plans were made for a Hispano-Suiza Xbre variant. The biplane was made up of a welded steel tube fuselage with fabric covering and plywood wooden wing construction.
On 18 January 1935, it set a Dutch high-altitude record, flown by Luitenant René Wittert van Hoogland. Although many pilots noted it was a nice plane, it suffered several setbacks and numerous problems resulting in accidents, most of them during take-off or landing when the plane flipped over.
In May 1939, the aircraft was considered obsolete and used as fight pilot training for the LVA Flying School.
