  26. 26. Direct Control Manner In the early time, The small helicopter was controlled by directly rotating the rotor shaft. Advantages: structure simple Disadvantages: too large control forces and difficult to control precisely Status: Still be used now by Gyroplane
  27. 27.

  32. 32. Mechanical Feature of Controller <ul><li>Gradient of Stick Force </li></ul><ul><li>Breakout Forces </li></ul><ul><li>Limited Control Forces </li></ul><ul><li>Cockpit Control Free Play </li></ul>The movement and load ranges of cockpit controllers shall be suitable to the pilot physiological characteristics. The mechanical features directly affect the control precision and pilot workloads.
  33. 33. Gradient of Stick Force <ul><li>The relationship between stick force and displacement should be monotonous, continuous, primarily linear and symmetry to center point. </li></ul><ul><li>The magnitude of stick forces gradient shall be suitable to control the helicopter precisely. The adjust system for trimming stick force is needed. </li></ul>Ideal Stick force vs. displacement real Stick force vs. displacement Forward Force Backward Force Backward Position Forward Position Forward Force Backward Force Breakout Force Trim Free Play Friction band Forward Position Backward Position
  34. 34. Breakout Forces <ul><li>Breakout forces, including friction, preload, etc., refer to the cockpit control force required to start movement of the control surface in flight. </li></ul><ul><li>In some cases, the engineers intently increase the friction to prevent from the slippage of stick position so that the pilot can remove his hands from the stick for a short time to do something. </li></ul>Forward Force Backward Force Breakout Force Trim Free Play Friction band Forward Position Backward Position
  35. 35. Cockpit Control Free Play <ul><li>The free play is that any motion of the cockpit control does not move the appropriate moment - or force - producing device in flight. </li></ul><ul><li>The free play is caused by clearance. </li></ul><ul><li>In design, the engineers will do their best to keep the free play as small as possible. </li></ul>Forward Force Backward Force Breakout Force Trim Free Play Friction band Forward Position Backward Position
  36. 36. Limited Control Forces <ul><li>Too large limited control forces will make the pilot tired and difficult to control the helicopter precisely. </li></ul><ul><li>Unless otherwise specified in particular requirements, the maximum control forces required shall not exceed the given value. </li></ul><ul><li>The value of limited control forces is given by the specification of flight qualities. </li></ul>
  37. 37. The Development of Controller <ul><li>Fly-by-Iron </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This controller was very common in the early time. It is still used in the small helicopters. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Advantages: simple, direct and reliable </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: large stick force, dithering of stick, free play and friction hurting the flight qualities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fly-by-Oil </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Combination of fly-by-iron and hydraulic system , stick control the hydraulic actuator which move the swashplate. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Advantages: large control power, no stick dithering, easy working with SCAS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: complicated structure, heavy, need of backup for safety </li></ul></ul>
  38. 38. The Development of Controller Stick inputs commands into computer with redundant technology. The computer controls the actuators (electric or hydraulic) Advantages: small, light, good flight qualities (insured by computer software), high reliability (redundant, self check) Disadvantages: electromagnetic effects (such as thunder) Fly-by-Wire
  39. 39. The Development of Controller Fly-by-Light Signals is carried by optical fiber, the others is the same as fly-by-wire. There is no electromagnetic effects. It is still under the development. Sidestick Controller Developed for fly-by-wire or fly-by-light. It located on the right side of pilot. The command signals are forces. Advantages: small size, big cockpit room. One hand and foot of pilot are free. Status: Installed on RAH-66 helicopter
