Hyper III, a full scale lifting body remotely steered vehicle, worked at the NASA Flight Research Center in 1969. The Hyper III was intended to help in the M2 lifting body program, it had a level base and sides, and a basic straight wing with no control surfaces [1] that was intended to recreate a fly out wing that had been proposed for a reentry vehicle. The Hyper III had twin blades and rudders inclined at 40° from the vertical, and pivoted elevons on the even surface.
