It's a scale model design that includes a rotating stabilizer under the fuselage, one of many concepts that Andre Watteyne explored in the late-1950s/early-1960s for various flying models.

EDIT: It actually might be the other way around; the bottom rotor creates lift while the main rotor stabilizes the model in flight.
