UAV configurations designed in overhead monoplane wing drone which provides sufficiently high lifting force is, however, to some extent, minimizes shunting quality which, in turn, a number of cases does not allow to use it according to the set objectives.

Первый полёт беспилотного летательного аппарата модели Globe KD4G Quail состоялся в 1949 году, и благодаря тому, что испытания устройства прошли весьма успешно, дрон-мишень поступил в серийное производство, которое, оказалось относительно небольшим, поскольку впоследствии были выявлены проблемы со стабилизацией полёта устройства.

Powerplant UAV Globe KD4G Quail represented by one piston engine brand Kiekhaefer O-45, which is having a traction capacity of 35 hp able to disperse the drone to the maximum speed of its movement in 250 km \ h. That fully satisfies the aims and objectives described above.
