Yes, but push forward the stick when the blades already hit the stops will aggravate the violence of the shocks in the hand.Vance;n1136995 said:If there was an instructor on board he would be saying "NOSE DOWN, STICK FORWARD" .
I feel it is important to get the cyclic forward at the first signs of hitting the teeter stops Jean Claude.Jean Claude;n1137025 said:Yes, but push forward the stick when the blades already hit the stops will aggravate the violence of the shocks in the hand.
In my opinion, first of all, It should reduce speed forward, by immediately stop throttle: Less flow trough the disc, less flapping angle
That's exactly what I said, Vance.Vance;n1137030 said:...reduce power to idle and mover the cyclic full forward before the rotor collides with something. In my experience this will immediately stop the tapping against the stops.
That is an interesting theory Jean Claude.Jean Claude;n1137041 said:That's exactly what I said, Vance.
Regarding the stick quickly pushed forward:
If the flapping angle reaches 9 degrees and the flapping stops leave only 8 degrees of freedom, then at each touch the stop pushes the stick back of 1 degree and you can move the stick forward only between two successive shocks. If, in this time interval, you have moved the stick forward 3 degrees, the next shock will push the stick back by almost 4 degrees instead of 1 degree. Thus, more violent for the pilot.
Slow down.Vance;n1137043 said:What would recommend at the onset of hitting the teeter stops Mr Beaty?
My goal in getting the cyclic forward at the onset of the tapping in the cyclic is to keep the rotor blades away from the rudder.C. Beaty;n1137051 said:Slow down.
Pushing the stick forward can stop teeter stop pounding while still on the ground; killing the lift of the advancing blade eliminates the force that causes uncontrolled flapping.
