Homework Help: Helicopters (Coursework) anyone got any recommendations?

    Helicopters (Coursework) anyone got any recommendations??

    I am writing about generally how helicopters work and all physics to do with them....

    Forces that Act on a Helicopter....

    These are what i have started on... intro into the basic physics
    Drag... Air Resistance.... Thrust.... Torque (Effect)... Lift....


    I was just wondering (A2 Physics Coursework) if anyone has any recommendations on any topics to write about on the subject of HELICOPTERS... i need to cover everything on the general physics.... i also need to include some advanced physics that is not covered by six form courses... something that will stand out in a 16-18 year olds knowledge on physics
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Welcome to the PF.

    What have you learned so far? What have you been reading about helicopter physics so far? What have you read about learning to fly helicopters? (that last one will help to give you some advanced tips for things that helicopters do when you fly them, that you wouldn't normally think of when just thinking about the mechanical physics)

    What are some of the recent innovations in helicopter construction?
