I wasn't until I found out they were completely separate designations from what I already had at my site. Your list confused me and so I went on a searching spree... now it makes perfect sense. I need another 5-hour Energy shot...

And thanks for the pic!

You are welcome! I have a book with detailed texts and specs for the K-1X, K-2, K-3, K-4, and also three views for all of these except the K-1X. I'll scan them tomorrow hopefully.

Hello!

Here I have a picture of the Kellett XR-3 from "American Helicopter" magazine, December 1945, page 23. I also scanned the text separately.

Thanks,

Mike

That's the Kellett KH-1, evaluated as the XR-8, not the XR-3. There's a typo in this article!

Hello!

Yes Gunship it is the XR-8, or KH-1 according to Stargazer. Here it is again in the March 1946 issue on page 8.

Thanks,

Mike
