Hi, Vincent

If you'd done a Google image search on "X-47B" you would have
seen that this "UCAS drone" for the U.S. Navy is in fact not
saucer or disk shaped at all, but only appears to be so, sort
of, when photographed from the side or at a somewhat front

In fact, the X-47B has a kind of "flying saucer" appearance at
certain side or frontal angles due to both visual stealth and
aero- dynamic design reasons, but actually has two stubby,
angular wings.

For clarity, see this .jpg image, showing the XB-47B from side,
front, and top views, with specific dimensions and planform
