Did you know?
The rotor of a helicopter produces reaction torque as it turns; this causes the body of the helicopter to spin. Tail rotors are responsible for counteracting this torque.
On twin-rotor helicopters the rotors spin in opposite directions to counteract reaction torque.
The rotor blades of helicopters operate at supersonic speed.
