Definitions for "Abramovich flyer"
The Abramovich flyer was an early aircraft built by Vsevolod Mikhailovich Abramovich in 1912, based on the Wright brothers' designs he had seen while working for their German subsidiary. Differences from the Wright designs of the time included wheeled undercarriage, and conventional empennage replacing the canard the Wrights used. Abramovich retained the wing warping technique the Wrights used for control of the aircraft, but controlled this with a control stick rather than the harness of the Wrights' design.
