I have always been fascinated with the swash plate used to control the rotor on a helicopter and have even built several in my machine shop. But I continue to be a bit mystified by just how it is they operate with the various actions they perform without those actions interfering with one another. I am trying to obtain a clearer picture of how a teetering rotor works with both cyclic and collective action on the swash plate and rotor. I have been to many sites on the Internet but have never come across a full explanation with diagrams as to how the whole process works. Can anyone out there give me a hand?
