r22butters Posted June 21, 2010 Report Share Posted June 21, 2010 I've heard a few people say that one of the reasons they prefer fully-articulated helicopters, is that they don't have to worry about Low-G Mast Bumping, like we in the semi-ridged world do. Although I do understand that a fully-articulated rotor's blades are not underslug, and therefore will not bump the mast, can't it still get into Low-G? If you abruptly push the nose forward in cruise, or during a climb, won't it still cause the rotor to become "unloaded", and the blades to swing down and cut the tail cone off, if you put in lateral cyclic to stop the accompanying roll? Anyway, I don't have a lot of experience with fully-articulated rotors, so I just thought I'd ask. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
