Remote Piloted Aerial Vehicles The Radioplane Target DroneOQ 3 / TDD 2 and OQ 14 / TDD 3Reginald Denny (1891 1967) and Walter H.

Righter (1905 1982)"Looking very much like a man carrying sport plane except for its diminutive size, the OQ 3 was the radio controlled target drone produced in the greatest numbers during World War II. It is ironic louis vuitton authentication check to note that its success resulted in there being only 6 left of the 9,403 built a tribute to the accurate marksmanship of those who acquired their skill by shooting them down for practice."also. It had a sturdier steel tube construction in the fuselage, an louis vuitton neverfull lining uprated O 15 3 engine driving a single propeller, no landing gear, and modified equipment. The OQ 3 could achieve a speed of 165 km/h (102 mph). Navy variant was designated TDD 2, and Radioplane and Frankfort eventually built a total of about 9400 examples of this drone. It had a new mid mounted and slightly swept back wing, but was otherwise identical to the OQ 3. It was of heavier construction and had a more powerful O 45 1 engine, rated at 16 kW (22 hp). Compared to the OQ 3, the RP 8A also had a longer fuselage, a shorter wingspan, and wings set louis vuitton shoes replica wholesale flush with the fuselage. The improvements increased the top speed to 225 km/h (140 mph). The OQ 3 wing was placed a little above the fuselage corner."Radioplane RP 10RP 10, Walter Righter supervising the training of army personnelPhoto : Righter Family Archives Click Image to EnlargeFran (Righter) Tucker comments :You might note that in the beginning my father had to train ALL the military men how to work (fix or fly, etc.) HIS engines and that's what he is doing here. The OQ 6 was more powerful than Radioplane's contemporary OQ 3, reaching a speed of 270 km/h (168 mph) with its 16 kW (22 hp) Righter O 45 four cylinder engine. He is the inventor of a midget robot plane very, very hush hush during the war and used extensively by both Army and Navy Air Forces as targets in the training of aerial and antiaircraft gunners."Reginald Denny, OQ 3 launchThe American Magazine, 1947 Click Image to Enlarge>"Denny is not a scientist nor unusually mechanically minded. It all started when he tried to help a youngster fly a model plane and it crashed. They are named after the actor, being called Target Drone Dennys."Reginald DennyThe American Magazine, 1947 Click Image to Enlarge>"The services still use them Furthermore. Denny believes there are commercial uses of the plane, one of which is shown taking off In the photo and controlled by Denny. Blandings Builds His Dream House". He has 3 children and his principal diversions aside from the robots, are gardening, painting, and sailing."Reginald Denny's Drone : Actor Played Important Role In Defense WorkThe Los Angeles Times published an article after Reginald Denny had died that illustrates his significant influence. No modeler has had this kind of impact on the aerospace industry. The article also published a rare picture of a pre WWII test of an early drone. Denny's first contract for $30,000 in 1938 to produce 3 hp, 8 1/2 foot long drones at $600 each for the Army blossomed into a multi million dollar industry during World War II, and has continued as such ever since. The actor's target plane firm, called Radioplane Co. became a Northrop subsidiary in 1962. More than 85000 KD 2R5 basic training target planes have been turned out by Northrop and the predecessor company, Radioplane since 1964. In addition to the KD 2R5, 12,000 other target aircraft have been manufactured by Northrop over the years. Half the sales are aircraft. and flies at altitudes above 30,000 feet. The KD 2R5. Average life expectancy for a drone is five flights. The record number of flights for one of the pilotless planes before being knocked out in target practice is 64 missions. Research and development is under way for RPV's that could deliver bombs and other weapons during wartime situations.'Bare Navy War on Japs' 'Bare Navy War on Japs'Los Angeles Times Click Image to Enlarge>Download a 2500 pixel [3.2Mb] image Dr Naughton,Thanks very much for you kind reply louis vuitton bags in hawaii to my e mail. Here is some rather "sketchy" information [on the Radioplane and Radioplane Co. My father sold Reginald Denny Industries in 1939, when Radioplane Co. During about 1946, beginning with the OQ 19, I believe McCulloch began building all engines for the Radioplane drones. The RP 1 pictured in your site, really never had a successfully controlled flight. Nor did the RP 2, or RP 3. The RP 4 was successfully flown in 1939, and the first Army contract was issued for five of these planes. One for elevator control and the other for rudder control. The idea was, that when current was applied to one motor this would be "up" elevator. The next signal would be stop or neutral elevator and the next "down". None of this functioned properly. Eventually Bendix Aviation manufactured the receivers and I believe the actuators. government. Some of these were: Army designation OQ 2A; OQ 2B. (Navy designation TDD 1); OQ 3; OQ 7; RP 9; and OQ 14, (Navy TDD 3) 15, 16 through RP 35. to Whitley Collins, president of Radioplane Co. I was given a book published by Northrop Aircraft in 1985 written by Richard A. Botzum 50 Years of Target Drone Aircraft. I doubt however, any of copies are available now. It's more complete in some respects than what I have. as an assembler on the OQ 3 production line. A screen test, a change of name and a career very different from assembling robot planes quickly followed. The rest as they say, 'is history.'Norma Jeane Dougherty, June 26, 1945Photo : David ConoverCalifornia, June 15, 1944 Dearest Grace,I was so happy to hear from you. Also will send you lots of snap shots at the same time I send you the picture. I found out that a 10" x 12" (that was the size you wanted, wasn't it ?) costs exactly $ 5.00.[.]I am working 10 hrs. a day at Radioplane Co., at Metropolitain airport. I am saving almost everything I earn (to help pay for our future home after the war).

The work isn't easy at all for I am on my feet all day and walking quite a bit. without a whole army full of them. The Personal Officer said that he would hire me but that he wouldn't advice it for my own sake, so I am back at Radioplane Co.
