The company also developed the GEN 125, a very small 8 hp (6 kW), twin-cylinder, two-stroke aircraft engine to power the H-4. The engine weighs 3 kg (6.6 lb) and four are used in the H-4 design to provide redundancy.[1]

The company does not have any fixed location, but has carried out its development work in borrowed facilities.[3]

The company name translates as "fountain of wisdom".[3]
