one more thing. i just went to http://science.howstuffworks.com/helicopter6.htm and they have a video on how the collective control works (http://static.howstuffworks.com/mpeg/heli-collective.mpg). you can clearly hear the woman say that if you lift the collective you increase the pitch of the blades so you get more lift and you'll go up. so it would seem that collective up means helicopter goes up. maybe in austria they do it differently. --alex-- -- | I believe the moment is at hand when, by a paranoiac and active | | advance of the mind, it will be possible (simultaneously with | | automatism and other passive states) to systematize confusion | | and thus to help to discredit completely the world of reality. | _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel 2f585eeea02e2c79d7b1d8c4963bae2d
