Warning - thread drift

have you figured out why the blades turn left or right yet
Your sciolistic post in the relevant thread was

The advancing blade on the main rotor creates more lift then the retreating blade in forward flight. The pilot sits on the side of the advancing blade to counteract the roll tendancy at higher speeds.
I'm sure the plank drivers reading your statement will not take long to educate themselves on helo aerodynamics, and drop to the floor convulsing in mirth, as did the helo pilots.

For your information con-pilot is a highly experienced aviator, as a little research on your part would soon prove. His opinion is highly regarded by legitimate members, your personal diatribe against him is misplaced, but it's what we've come to expect from you.
