Helicopters should not have gyros in them!
This seems really obvious but I have seen tons of people, even 100K+ users, who are shoving gyros in their helicopters for handling even though they have helicopter rotor blades.
Have you heard of a swash plate? What? You haven’t? Well, let me explain.
A swash plate is a that’s thingy that attaches to the blades on a rotor so that they moves in ways that the helicopter can pitch and roll. The rotors on SP have this feature BUILT IN. Amazing right?
Yes that’s right, helicopters manoeuvre without any mystical, magical forces that make them do that stuff.
“James I know about this feature but it doesn’t make my helicopter manoeuvrable well enough. It’s too sluggish.”
Well let me show you something.
See these sliders? Make them higher if it’s not manoeuvrable enough! Experiment! Test what happens when you fiddle with this stuff!
