Abstract

Records were made in f1iht of the periodic variation in the load in the control system of a YG-1B autogiro fitted with a new set of tapered rotor blades designed to eliminate periodic blade twist. Comparison with similar records obtained previously in tests of the ori6inal blades shows that the new blades considerably reduce the vibration of the control stick.
