April Maker Challenge 20/30: Flying Saucer

Absurdly unrealistic, but it might be fun to play around with in model form. What would need to happen to have a heavier-than-air flying saucer? Gyro-controlled jets? Helium bladders to lighten the load? Is there any way it would work with a metal skin? Most likely it would have to be some sort of paper-thin plastic over balsa... pity.
