holy crap its like a whirling death ring for birds. look at all those blades lol

Very cool. It appears they are spinning half one way and half the other (or something like that), negating the need for a tail rotor.

Drones do that too. My son and I found that out accidentally by returning the blades to the wrong motors on his micro drone. We wondered for a time why it would just spin in circles and act erratically. After some pizza and some Transformers movies we figured it out.
