Ballot. Berline, Type RH3, 1930
 Ballot. Berline, Type RH3, 1930. Ref. 1. Detail. The error with the Ballot, of course, was that it had an overly complex engine and bodywork that for selling was not eye-catching enough.

Such a plane was bought by Hugo Sundstedt in Sweden 1914, but crashed during testing in France. After reparation and hospital he stayed there and then flew to Malmö where the plane crashed upon landing. It then ended up in Södertelge Werkstäder.

The first world war was of course a success for air plane designers of the planes and large quantities were built. One plane was delivered to Ask Nyrop in Malmö.
