Let's mount a camera on a helicopter rotor.

This clip (slowed down 8x) shows the motion of a helicopter's blade in a typical forward flight phase. You can notice the blade pitch change and the motion of the damper weights https://buff.ly/2N4XUk6 [more: https://buff.ly/31L6W9f ]

2. It makes me dizzy

Now I'm feeling nauseous.

Thanks, though, 'cause it's a cool video.

3. Videos like this set up a real dissonance in my brain:

On the one hand, I never want to fly again because it's all way too complicated and just can't possibly work.

On the other hand, I'm reassured about flying because these things show how some talented people figured out how to make all this too-complicated stuff work...

4. hoo boy do I hear you

I dated an airline pilot and he used to have me read flashcard questions in preparation for review / simulator stuff.....the questions were sooooo complicated and then he would reel off long, complicated answers almost identical to the answers on the cards....amazing
