Here is some litterature that might offer information on the topic (I'm missing three of these titles):

Fritz Trenkle "Die deutschen Funklenkverfahren bis 1945" (AEG-Telefunken, 1982)

I have only just now checked the link you gave in your last response.

In fact they have both Goliaths mixed up.

the one they claim to be a 303 is in fact the 302 and the one they claim to be the 302 with E-Motor is the badly restored 303. in fact the top plates and back plates have all been added at a later time during "restoration". You can see the air vents on the sides for a 303 with V-Motor.
