I am pretty familiar with how different delta settings affect a heli (correcting and uncorrecting)

But what I would really like to understand is; how does delta work mechanically?

On a heli's head, what happens, and ho do different setups afect things?

Too much technical stuff makes my head hurt, I need pictures. Preferably drawn in crayon.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

search this forums for posts by Wayne Mann

he wrote a number of posts about "correcting" and "non-correcting" delta a couple of years ago

there weren't any diagrams but it was pretty well explained

Wayne pulled off most of his posts about many subjects, including this one...too many keyboard jocks arguing.

You can PM Wayne. I think he just went into each post and did the ole "Ctrl+A, Delete" thing.

Deleting good info just isn't right. What does it prove?

Well, just as the infrastructure of this forum is the property of Mark Ryder, the content is all ours. People have the right to retract or remove any of the content which they have submitted.

Sometimes you can only take so much arguing from two-gallon airchair pilots.
