i do have to disagree with you some on that. you don't have to have a airfoil surface to glide.
that is proven in paper airplanes and just your plain basic balsa wood airplanes. some can glide quite a far distance.
there are many people that make these as a hobby. and flight patterns can and are change by adding weight or taking the away.

This one is one of my favourites. It is difficult to not see a helicopter, tank, or aircraft.

The bottom image isn't "fake" but it's also not a helicopter, and shouldn't have been included in this thread. That bottom image has absolutely nothing to do with flying, flying machines, or anything of the sort and thus has no bearing whatsoever on the topic. The only reason I can see to use that particular image with this subject matter is to deceive or mislead.
