Looks more like a shrouded tail rotor to me...

This is a Phoenix Heligyro Corporation aircraft, not Nagler. I don't see a mention of it being a part of Nagler at all in the add you linked to.

As you can see in images one and two below, the Eagle was not just a spinoff of the Phoenix, it simply WAS the Phoenix under a new name. Both ads use the exact same illustration, with only the stars removed on the tail (see images six and seven for the entire original ads).Third image is a cutaway profile view of the Phoenix.Fourth image shows a model depicted as an Eagle II, which seems to have a shorter frame than the first model.Fifth image shows the "demo 1976" Eagle helicopter, obviously prior to the acquisition of the Nagler design, which has nothing in common with it.Sixth and seventh images are the original Phoenix and Eagle ads.

Found great photos of Nagler aircraft over here;
