Built in 1977 as a remotely piloted observation helicopter, powered by two Weslake 2-stroke 2-cylinder piston engines. The "Wideye" was a larger more sophisticated follow up to the "Wisp" with coaxial rotors of 2.30m diameter, allowing a gross weight of 125kg

Yes I was involved in the development of the payload carried by this helicoter and can add to the development story. Also have short video of one of its test flights.
