    Oh I see it now, there's a bump to the left (viewer perspective) of the right rear landing wheel.

    Really they need to get used to the idea the Chinese are going to be bringing out ucavs soon and it will save them a lot of stress down the road when china flies their own x-47b, a plane which had te same exclusive "America only" and "cutting edge" status f-22 did a few years ago which wad undermined by t-50 and more so by j-20.
    Personally I would wish for anjian to x-47b what J-20 is to F-22.

    Apparently this is a Shenyang project and is reported to have wingspan of 2m.
    Small scale demonstrator, I guess.

    That agrees with the size of the whip antenna.

    I wonder if they did the same for J-20, doing preliminary studies on its aerodynamics with a small scale J-20 demonstrator.

    Probably. It makes sense to investigate the stability and control of a new aircraft shape and test it with a single channel Fly-By-Wire system, if that is necessary. It is a cheap way to look for problems. You may launch it from a tower and not install a power plant or a radio control. As a next step add power plant and radio control to an aircraft that is say twice as large in linear dimensions. The power plant may have been a pusher propeller type for the J-20 model.

    The use of subscale demonstrators to qualify UCAV related technologies has direct precedents in the work carried out by Saab and Dassault. Saab's FILUR demonstrator, for example, had a wing span of 2.5M and an all up wieght of 55kg. Petit Duc was only a shade larger. Technology developed for both systems is now being directly re-applied in the Dassault-led NEURON program.

    Here's some pics that popped up. Looks like an RC model.

    the picture finally clarify some question, few months ago in the web, a picture of "H-9" bomber appear in the web, some newspaper even claim it was H-9 "sealth" bomber.
    if H-9 bomber did indeed exist how come there are no report from west, give the size of aircraft it could easily been detected by satelite.it may turn out to be a drone.

    Re: Chinese UAV & UCAV development

    The tailhook is interesting... I wonder if the subscale models are subscale because they wanted to test an automated shiplanding system on a smaller demonstrator first -- I'd thought the chinese aviation industry wouldn't need to create a subscale model first for a larger ucav... especially considering we are supposed to see the first of it from SAC within a year or so.
    CARRIER HAS ARRIVED! ^^

    Hmmm ... but my biggest question is: Are these really "only" enthusiasts, which show their RC-models flown on a maybe AVIC-sponsored "family"-day ... or what ?

    Fascinating. This looks like a model for a carrier based unmanned attack aircraft. A prototype might appear about 2014, but production will have to await extensive development and that will probably take many years.
