Flying saucers are not just part of science fiction anymore. A couple of Romanian engineers have developed a fully functional saucer with hyper-maneuverability. The ADIFO (All DIrections Flying Object) has a high lift/drag ratio and many other aerodynamic features.
This VTOL aerial vehicle uses four ducted fans and jet engines on the back for high maneuverability. It is ideal for atmosphere reentry and suborbital flights.
