This is a photo I grabbed of an assembled monocopter on the launch pad. It’s essentially a flat wooden blade, angled to create lift, with a rocket motor mounted at one end. A dowel or rod mounted perpendicular to the rotor is used for counterbalance. If you haven’t already guess with the word ‘copter’ in the name, it spins under rocket power to achieve the power of flight.
Here’s a video of a three stage monocopter. Crazy…
