Sorry the plane is so small in the video. You will need to zoom in to see the shape. I’m staying in a cabin near pigeon forge and it flew from the north heading south. A helicopter flew the exact same path immediately after. I’ve never seen a plane this shape. It was also very loud, that’s what caught my attention. Thanks

Flight radar says it’s a diamond star. I looked up images of a diamond star and the design looks completely different

The RQ-170 has a jet engine. The one in the video doesn’t.

Since FR said Diamond Star sounds like it's hitting as something GA (general aviation)
The profile to me looks like a Rutan style Canard, like a Long EZ, Vari EZ, or even a Velocity XL. Small home-built composite piston engine planes.

Current weather at Pigeon Forge-Gatlin airport shows overcast at 5,500 ft AGL, and the vehicle seemed to be cruising above the ceiling but not by very much and not moving very fast. Almost certainly a piston engine craft.

That’s what I was thinking too.

I didn't have audio. That would have helped I guess.

If I had to guess I'd say its one of Burt Rutans designs, he made a bunch of composite prop planes with unique layouts, its clearly a combustion engine and looks a lot like the VariEze.
