The FanTail is a Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air Vehicle developed by ST Aerospace.

A mock-up of the UAV made its first show appearance at Asian Aerospace 2006 in Singapore (21–25 February), along with the smaller original FanTail 3000 VTOL UAV, which has already flown about 100 hours.
