Note: This is a sub-section of Royal Aircraft Factory.

Designed in early 1914, it carried a one-pounder Coventry Ordnance Works gun and followed the pusher design of the F.E.3. It used the 120-hp Austro-Daimler engine.

It first flew on 14th November 1914 with Frank Widenham Goodden piloting but after a heavy landing, was not repaired.
