The Army used the 19D model which had to be flown within visual range.
In 1954 the Army received the 19B which had a different control system which included a gyroscope which allowed it to be flown by M-33 radar, limiting factor was the range of the plotting board including altimeter to see the attitude of the plane. I flew one drone for 3 hours and one minute before the battery failed. I also reached 30,000 feet MSL with the same plane over White Sands, New Mexico.
This plane had just been shipped from the shop. All things were perfect for this one flight.

Sir Would it be possible to obtain Engineering drawings of this A/C, especially of the gearbox of the contra-rotating propellers? The information is to be used to build a radio/ controlled model of this airplane. Thank you for time effort you have provided inmy effort to obtain this information.
