    judging from the size,it look like a very large attack UAV,during the afghan air war, there are plan to convert B-52 into unmanned attack or bomber drone.but it was abandone.
    the technology is not new, during the early 70's FAA do have plan to convert all airline into semi drone.
    plan in case of mid air hijack,the ground controller could override pilot control and fly the entire aircraft from the ground.in fact they even build a prototype,but it prove to expensive for the airline industries to retrofit it.

    Given the low resolution, there looks to be a hint of an antenna so it might be just scale RC model.

    now I see the antenna too, definitely a scale model.

    A scale model of something real, though? Scale model implies it is a copy of something larger.

    Probably a scale model for something to be build next year. It looks like a very high flying reconnaissance drone.

    Re: Chinese UAV & UCAV development

    From huitong's UAV page...

    It was reported (January 2012) that the first sub-orbital flight of a new unmanned spacecraft (Divine Dragon) took place successfully in 2011. The spacecraft is thought to be similar to American X-35B in configuration but smaller. It has been developed by the 611 Institute.
    o_O



    So we've known about this thing for a while and I guess the question is how big exactly this thing is and when it can make its first real space flight.

    Re: Chinese UAV & UCAV development

    China's 611 Institute should be congratulated on its successful January 2012 launch. China has the capability of developing a space craft like the "Divine Dragon" , & other types too. I witnessed the visit of the First Chinese "Taikonauts" (I believe that's what they are called) when I was in HK in 2006. The Chinese Scientific Team who sent the 4 (if I remember correctly) Taikonauts in a Chinese Craft to outer space for the first time, gave a very impressive video/power point presentation. The Team had young people including a lady. It's great when any country develops its outer space capabilities for peaceful purposes. China is capable of competing with the US, Russia & India in this field. Good luck!

    is he serious??
    if this spacecraft is similiar to X-35B it should have been launched with a Long March rocket but we know all the payload put in
    orbit in 2011.
