Thanks Stéphane, this reminded me, that on last years ILA in Berlin, I took a number of photos at
the Adcom stand in one of the chalets, although most producst were shown as wall charts only.
First the MALE United 40 with a quite distictive shape:

As I was going through the few "goodies" (brochures, leaflets and such) collected at Le Bourget, I came across a nice folder full of Adcom spec sheets...

Here is the YABHON-GRN 1 and YABHON-GRN 2 :

Here is a PDF file about the Iranian Sahi UAV (actually more of a man-launched Mini-UAS):
http://mohammad-rezaie.persiangig.com/Conceptual%20Design.pdf

Should it remain in this thread? Or be moved to the "Theoretical" section? It appears to be a student project as it emanates from the Amirkabir University of Technology (Teheran Polytechnic).

That Iranian Sahi UAV, looks like little more than a rather poor facsimile of the Israeli 'Skylark' platform. Doubtless also lacking the high quality systems that make a UAV into a UAS (note the 'S', denoting 'system')...

Have you only so much as looked into the PDF file? If you did you'd see that the reference to the Skylark is there, along with photos...
