I need help with my heli!

1,228 TheKraken3  2 months ago

I'm making my first heli, it's fictional and not based on a real one

I have several problems:

  1. I don't understand all these settings! There's lots of settings that I can change for heli rotors and I don't understand most of them

  2. How does the relationship between CoM, CoL, and CoT work in a heli?

  3. Why does it keep pitching up?

    Add a gyroscope. They're one of the most useful tools to keep helicopters in the air, and it may fix your problem of the heli pitching up

    Make sure the CoM is near or on the CoT for the main rotor. Also, keep the original orientation of the main rotor from when you placed it. If you want more stability, offset the CoM of the rotor way down low.
