Help!

WWII Era? Target Drone


So what do I have? Some brief digging seems to show it as similar to an OQ model. Not sure it's as old as WWII though.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Your pic didn't work (that you posted here)...and it looks like you found the other drone on rcgroups already! We need some better pictures of yours though...

Kinda what I was thinking. Not quite old enough looking to be WWII

Well I opened the parachute compartment and popped the covers off the engine. Nothing interesting though.

OQ-19, maybe? The tail looks like it might be a better match...

Pretty cool find there Dunkin. As for myself, I would have a big urge to fix it up, put in RC gear and go fly it.

But then I remembered that they didn't really expect to get these planes back after a mission. So the engines tend to be pretty cheaply made and not designed to last a long time. But it would be fun though.
