I know that the Wright brothers patented their Wing Warping method for controlling the roll of a plane or glider in Great Britain, France, United States, Austria, Italy,... but did they obtain a patent for it in Germany?

This is the Austrian patent:

They have a German patent published in 1906 (see below) but I never found its content. I do not know what is written in it.

  • Orville Wright und Wilbur Wright in Dayton, (V. St. A.) Patentschrift. Nr. 173378. Klasse 77h. Gruppe 7. Mitwagerechtem Kopfruder und senkrechtem Schwanzruder versehener Gleitflieger.
