|The Zeppelin-Lindau (Dornier) CS.I is seen during testing with the drag-producing side radiators and spinner removed.
Clearly inspired by the Brandenburg monoplanes, the all-metal Dornier Cs.I takes off on a test flight. Ear radiators are fitted to expedite testing, but a nose radiator was soon fitted for lower drag. Powered by a 195 hp Benz Bz.IIIb V-8 engine, it had a maximum speed of 150 kmh (94 mph) and was armed with a fixed gun for the pilot and a flexible gun for the observer. Three examples were built but it was too late for service.

|The Cs.I on a compass platform. The bracing wires and box radiators on the fuselage side produced too much drag for the design to fulfill its designed performance despite its 195 hp Benz V-8 engine.||J.Herris - German Seaplane Fighters of WWI /Centennial Perspective/|
|The CS.I was intended to use a nose radiator as seen here. This installation produced less drag than the ear radiators and enabled the CS.I to attain greater speed.|
