Rotorcraft with opposing roll mast moments, and related methods

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #8128034.

In rotorcraft having rotors on multiple masts, a controller causes opposing roll mast moments to be applied to the different rotors. In preferred embodiments, the opposing roll moment is the result of increasing the lift on the advancing blade and reducing the lift on the retreating blade on the second rotor. This can be accomplished in any suitable manner, such as by applying differential cyclic roll control to the two rotors by tilting the two Swashplates of the two rotors or by using Individual Blade Control (IBC).
