The Dornier Do 10 was the name given by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM) of a pre-World War II German aircraft. The aircraft has a complicated history due to renaming and the use of three different engines with correspondingly different specifications.

Developed in 1931, it was originally called Do C1, with one variant being the C4. It was the first aircraft of the C model line and was followed by the C2. It most likely started as the C1 and performance numbers suggest it tested BMW engines, and then Hispano-Suiza powerplants. Later that year possibly renamed C4 with the testing of the Rolls-Royce engine. The tilted engine and propeller position was one of the key features it tested along with multiple engine use. In any case, it was a two-seat parasol-wing monoplane intended to be used as a fighter. Two prototypes were made both in 1931.
