Canadian Bell experimented extensively with tetrahedral kites in his quest of powered, controlled flight. His kite experiments culminated in the giant Cygnet, with 3300 cells. His Aerial Experiment Association, including Douglas McCurdy, Casey Baldwin, Glenn Curtiss, and Thomas Selfridge, achieved flight in their White Wing and June Bug airplanes, the latter featuring ailerons and a three-wheel undercarriage.
