I just found this on the defencetech website. This is so cool.

Its really practical. Think, if you're in an ambush or being shot at and you need eyes in the sky immediately. You could jump the hummer, throw the boomerang and have instant sight over the battle.

It could probably have alot of other non-military uses too like the police or SAR.

That's why a small company out of Minneapolis, VeraTech Areo, has built a hand-held spy drone that it says is practically invisible. Battery powered and shaped like a boomerang, the "Phantom Sentinel" unmanned aeiral vehicle (UAV) "is in constant motion and the center of [its] mass is located outside of the fuselage,"

Even better, the company promises, is that the folding, backpack-ready drone "has a uniquely minimal cross section allowing it to 'slice' through even the most adverse weather conditions that would keep conventional UAV systems on the ground. The rotational inertia generated in flight allows the UAV to self level and maintain a very high degree of stability, even while hovering."
