Charles W. Posted February 1, 2004 Report Share Posted February 1, 2004 Anyone here have any experience with gimble head rotor systems? As I understand the behaviour of a gimble head rotor system if you increase airspeed in level flight ( Gyroplane ) the Rotor Thrust Vector will change due to the advancing blade increasing Aof A and retreating blade will have a decreased Aof A resulting in flap back of the rotor disk as speed increases. So the net result will be an increase of rotor disk Aof A. Have I got this correct? Reverend Chas W. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
