One of the oddest things I have ever seen in the skies. just look at that ridicoulous mini-propellor behind the tail. it looks as if that thing was built out of lego blocks. but a funny sight. (gp)

Actually, the small rotor on it's tail provides pitch control during vertical flight, which is accomplished by tilting the wing.
