David, as I understand it the original  Langley Aerodrome models were steam powered, so don’t qualify. Samuel Langley flew  two models of it successfully and it was the results of that which lead to funding by the US military of the full sized plane, which failed. 

Can’t speak for the smaller model of it that you show though, clearly not built by Langley. Perhaps that was the first as you suggest.
