Powered by a single 72 HP Porsche engine, the QH-50A was the droned version of Gyrodyne's XRON-1 Rotorcycle. This particular airframe was the flying evaluation prototype and was capable of carrying one Mark 43 homing torpedo. The technology pioneered by this type is still in use today. Photographed hanging from the ceiling of the USS Yorktown hangar deck.
