The Radioplane OQ-5 (company designation RP-7[1]) was an experimental target drone built in the United States in World War II.

Design and development

The OQ-5 was similar to the Radioplane OQ-2 in having a wingspan measuring 12 feet (3.7 meters) and counter-rotating propellers but differed in being of plywood construction and having a plywood cantilever wing. Only one example of the OQ-5 was built, but no production order was ever placed.[2][3][1]
