The Advanced Soaring Concepts Apex was a remotely-piloted sailplane designed to take part in a NASA study of high-altitude aerodynamics. It was planned to lift the aircraft to around 100,000 ft (30,487 m) by balloon and release it there. Rockets would assist the aircraft to transition to horizontal flight. The Apex's wing was designed by Dr Mark Drela of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and mounted a "wake rake" containing sensors to measure drag behind the wing. ...more on Wikipedia about "Advanced Soaring Concepts Apex"

The ChangKong-1 (CK-1) is a radio-controlled target drone developed by the Nanjing Institute of Aeronautics in the People's Republic of China. It is based on the reverse engineering of Lavochkin La-17C drones supplied to the PRC by the Soviet Union in the early 1960s before all such Soviet technical aid to the nation was withdrawn. Its chief designer was General Zhao Xu and the first example flew on December 6 1966. A key difference from its predecessor is the use of a turbojet in place of a ramjet engine. ...more on Wikipedia about "ChangKong-1"

Helios Prototype is the name of a solar- and fuel cell system-powered uninhabited aerial vehicle that NASA tested. AeroVironment, Inc. developed the vehicle under NASA's Environmental Research Aircraft and Sensor Technology program. In August, 2001, it set an unofficial world record for sustained altitude by a winged aircraft. It sustained flight at above 96,000 feet (29,250 m) for forty minutes, and at one time it flew as high as 96,863 feet (29,524 m). Later, in June 2003, the prototype fell into the Pacific Ocean about ten miles (20 km) west of the Hawaiian Island Kauai. ...more on Wikipedia about "Helios Prototype"

Insect flight, In the past several million years, flying insects have evolved with amazing flight characteristics and abilities. In many ways, they are still far superior to anything mankind has created. Even our understanding of the aerodynamics of flexible, flapping wings and how insects fly is imperfect. The most obvious application of this research is the engineering of low Reynolds number, extremely small Micro Air Vehicles. ...more on Wikipedia about "Insect flight"

The Lockheed D-21 was a Mach 3+ reconnaissance drone that began development in October 1962. Originally known by the Lockheed designation Q-12, it was intended to be launched off the back of the Lockheed A-12 for extra-long range flights and/or missions that were too dangerous for a manned vehicle. With a single Hycon high-resolution photographic camera, it was designed to fly over a pre-programmed location, and then drop the hatch containing the camera into the ocean, where it could be retrieved. The D-21 itself would then self-destruct. ...more on Wikipedia about "Lockheed D-21" Things go better with http://www.shortopedia.com.
