VeraTech Phantom Sentinel and the Scroton revisited (updated)

Not quite a monocopter but along the same line, VeraTech's Phantom Sentinel is a small spinning UAV.  It appears to be a product vs. in R&D.  Also cool.  (hat to to Ken from ZZakk's Lab)  {In looking for the photo re-posted below, I found I had previously posted about this.}

Update: I struck-through the phrase above because Ken pointed out that, since it has only one wing, the Phantom Sentinel is in fact a monocopter. It just happens to have two motor booms.

The closest rocket powered doohickey that I've seen is Chris Eilbeck's Scroton.
