Doyle Moon Maid

 

Moon Maid started out to be a gyroplane, but after a couple of years the designer/builder, Richard Doyle, decided to turn it into a standard airplane, stretching the fuselage four feet and replacing the rotor with a pair of wings spanning 23.5 feet. He pow-ered it with a Bob Huggins 1523cc VW conversion of about 50 hp, one of the first homebuilts to use VW power.
