It seems that China was able to get this off of the ground. Wonder what the recent tensions between Japan is going to think of this advancement ?

China 'flies first stealth drone' - reports

 

China successfully flew a stealth drone for the first time on Thursday, state media said, citing eyewitness reports.

A drone, called "Sharp Sword" by the media, made a test flight for around 20 minutes in Chengdu, reports said.

China has been developing stealth aircraft in recent years, including J-20 and J-31 stealth fighters.

In September, an unmanned drone flew close to a group of disputed islands in the East China Sea, raising tensions with Japan.
