The Cyclone Spin Unit is an unstable single propellor, or a "unicopter" recovery system, based on the dynamics of a maple seed. It was designed after many experiments were performed on maple seeds and an origami model. You can read about the background of Cyclone in Exploring Science and Design with a Maple Seed.
