Ever since I got a Blade and now a Trex SE I have been trying to figure out how the cyclic works to change direction.
As near as I can see, a right input tilts the swash plate and gives a forward tilt to the blades when they are lined up with the fuseledge. It seems to me this would cause a forward tilt, not right. When the blades rotate to a position 90 degrees to the fuseledge, a right input does nothing to the blades yet it seems to me that this would be the moment that the blades should be rotated to give more lift to the left side than the right making the helicopter go right.
Is there a delayed reaction or something that I'm not accounting for?
