Helicopter Swashplate: how does it work? Video with details


Junior Member
Hi guys, how are you?

I love things that fly, mainly VTOL!

I had an idea of how does the helicopter goes up and down (collective) but I didn't know how does it goes front, back, right, left (cyclic).

After some research for a mechanical engineering subject (mechanisms) I've done a basic video showing the the swashplate with some simplification


Regards ;)
