Climb Torque vs. Cruise Torque

Recommended Posts

Actually, it is a reduction in the cruise. The rotor is getting more clean air from in front, rather than descending air from above. With less Induced Flow, the total reaction vector moves forward a little, reducing the rotor drag and thus the torque needed to maintain flight. Look at your Power Required curves to verify this.
