The drone in the photo is a KD6G-1 target drone built by Globe Corp. in the early '50 for the Navy. Had an all metal structure, was propelled by a McCulloch 0-100-1 flat four, two stroke 72 Hp piston engine driving a 42"/60" wooden propeller. Was launched by a pneumatic catapult and recovered by a round 32 foot diameter parachute. The drone was radio controlled and could float for sea recovery.

If you need other info let me know
