This is an idea I have recently been toying with respect to 3D applications. Ofcourse everyone is more than familliar with the standard 2 blade configuration as it represents the simplest setup. A few have also experimented with single bladed heads with a counterweight.
However, I have been wondering about the implementation of say a 4 or 5 bladed head for use in a 3D flight profile. Given that the abruptness of required inputs would result in lower vibes on the airframe, it follows that the triple axis gyros would require less damping allowing a faster response time, resulting in quicker dead-stop manouvers.
However, I have never worked with a heli with anything more than 2 blades. Given the tradeoff of moveable aitr-mass with HS versus a smaller radiussed disc, do you think that an FBL 4 blade head would offer an improved flight profile ?
