What is this UAV?
Hi, everyone.
I am interested in a special UAV, which I’ve seen it from a video in a fortunate incident. Unfortunately, I do not know any information about it, even it's name.
What I seen is that, it is a rotary UAV, with two round birdcage-like cylinders on the upper surface of each wing, whose rotary axises are along the spanwise direction. That is the hole source of its lift.

So, is there anyone who knows this kind of UAV or flying mechanism?Any information about it is appreciated, so that I can do some searches before the simulation. And, at this point, thank you!
