I'd sure like to know how that thing flies with no vertical fin area. Must be a bunch of software compensating for that.

The pilots aboard the carrier must be hacked the UCAV is going to hit the 3 wire every time! Lol do you guys know or think they will grade its landings?

Thomas me too! I was thinking what would happen if you made on nice enough for Topgun? The rules say you must have a pilot in the cockpit or you get down graded lol.
