Rotors animation seem off

I was watching the rotors and they don't bend with air envelope, and they seem reversed in the spin pointing down instead of bowing up, look at the MI8 and Hin24 rotor animation they seem more correct with lift effects.:thumbup::joystick:

In the Mi-8 and Mi-24 the blades have a flapping hinge at the hub (IIRC) which allows each blades to flap up and down individually and give a 'coning' appearance when the disc is loaded.

 

The UH-1H does not have this hinge as it is a teetering-head system and the entire blade/hub assembly flaps up and down simultaneously.

 

The only way for the blades to 'cone' is for the lifting force on the blades to be so great (and/or the centrifugal force so low) that the blades bend upward along their length.

 

The metal blades on a UH-1H (which aren't modeled) didn't cone much unless they were experiencing extreme loading, such as during a high-torque wingover while heavily loaded during a gunship mission.

 

I'm not sure how rigid the composite blades (which are modeled) are as I never used them.

 

If that doesn't answer your question please post a picture.

in these pics you can see the rotors from belsimtech are more, not so high in detail.

As in the Cobra rotor.:joystick:
