I'm not clear why the wing has to rotate, unless it's for gyroscopic stabilisation. There'd be a very large gyroscope precession forces when you tried to climb or descend (akin to the turning problems you got with WW1 rotary-engined planes). And there appears to be no anti-torque mechanism to counter the fuselage's tendency to rotate in the opposite direction from the wing.
