Flying Saucer

A pair of Romanian scientists have perfected a perfect UFO after years of engineering. Operating like a "quadcopter", the craft handles take-off, landing, and slow speed maneuvers through four ducted fans. A pair of jet engines at the rear of the saucer provide horizontal thrust. A pair of lateral thrust nozzles on each side of the disc allow it to rapidly push itself sideways in either direction, or quickly rotate while in flight.
