MachThree Posted February 10, 2010 Report Share Posted February 10, 2010 I have a question about rotorheads. I'm thinking of a two bladed teetering rotor, though I suspect this might be applicable to other rotor types as well. As a blade flaps up, it will (I think) pull the pitch horn farther away from the rotating swash plate (and as the blade flaps down, the pitch horn will come closer to the swash plate). Since the pitch links are attached both to the pitch horn and to the swash plate, when the blade flaps up, does this (in and of itself) cause the pitch of the blade to be lowered somewhat? Does the blade flapping down likewise cause the pitch of the blade to be increased somewhat? Or will the blade flapping action not cause the pitch of the blade to be adjusted in any way?
