Ask an Explainer

Q:

How is a helicopter controlled?

A:

A helicopter is controlled using the main rotor and the tail rotor. By tilting the main rotor forward or backward, this controls the pitch of the helicopter. By tilting the main rotor left or right, this controls the roll of the helicopter. By spinning the tail rotor faster or slower, this controls the yaw of the helicopter.
