Yes, the Aero .35 was an interesting oddity. There were also "in-line" engines, where the piston was fully axial with the crankshaft, operated by a swash plate. The cleverest, however, (in my opinion) are the RCV (rotating cylinder valve) engines, ( http://www.westonuk.co.uk/westonuk2_037.htm ) a British invention and still in production.
