From the ‘X-Files’ Dept: Has Iran Built a Flying Saucer?


The Fars News Agency—funded by the Iranian government—says that Iran has built a flying saucer called Zohal and used the image above in their story. The machine, reported to be used for aerial imaging, is equipped with an auto-pilot system, GPS (Global Positioning System) and two separate imaging systems with full HD 10 mega-pixel picture quality and is able to take and send images simultaneously.

Zohal uses a small, portable navigation and monitoring center for transmission of data and images and can fly in both outdoor and indoor spaces. According to PopSci, the Iranian Student News Agency also reported on the story and used an image of the DraganFlyer X6 in their story.
