According to Duowei News, the drone is ready for its maiden flight after completing its taxi tests in December last year.

Designed jointly by the Hongdu Aviation Industry Group and Shenyang Aviation Corporation, the Lijian is quite similar to both the U.S. X-47B and the European nEUROn.

    Yes, how about all those Chinese spys at our Los Alamos laboratories during the Clinton administration. They used to call it “Chinese take out”.
