This story is worthless without a picture!

  The engine was a drone airplane engine from World War II,
not a Marman drone


But one small part of the history did last: After Navy admirals visited London in 1935 and saw a demonstration of an especially impressive radio-controlled aircraft called the Queen Bee, they started a research program to create their own machines. As a tip of the hat, they called them drones.
