Chinese Flying Saucer

Prototype

Projects like these beg the question, at what point do you pull out. Chinese company Harbin Smart Special Aerocraft spent 12 years and $4.1 mil. to build a working flying saucer to carry out aerial photography and geological surveys. With a maximum flight time of 40 minutes, it makes google earth a pretty cheap alternative (we jest).
