What direction does a helicopter's rotors spin?

Depending on the make of the helicopter, some will rotate clockwise and others will rotate counter-clockwise. However, the main rotor and tail rotor will spin opposite of each other. If the tail rotor spins clockwise, the main rotor will spin counter-clockwise. The main rotor also spins for lift, the tail rotor for control.

The rotor blade on the side of the helicopter that moving in the opposite direction?

The tail rotor is moving "perpendicular" to the main rotor, not "opposite". The tail rotor creates thrust opposite to the thrust of the main rotor, to keep the fuselage from spinning. Most helicopters spin the main rotor counter-clockwise looking from above, which puts a clockwise rotation on the fuselage. You need a tail rotor pushing the tail counter-clockwise to keep the fuselage pointed in the direction the pilot chooses.

Why would a 305 Buick engine rotor turn counter clockwise?

Because it's supposed to. Some turn clockwise, some counter clockwise. Why? You would have to ask the design engineer but I suspect it has to do with patent rights. A Buick and an Olds. engine could be the same design and if the distributor turns in a different direction, it can be claimed as a different design.

Why running helicopter backside fanmotor?

If you are talking about the rear rotor (in the very back); it is used to counter the turning or yaw of the aircraft. The main rotor is turning in a certain direction and the rear rotor keeps the copter from just spinning around. The rear rotor can be adjusted to make the copter slowly turn.

For a volkswagen with rotor that turns clockwise what direction do you turn distributor to advance or retard?

To advance, rotate the distributor counter-clockwise. To retard, roatate it clockwise).

Does the firing order on a 1981 Ford Courier go clockwise or counter?

1-3-4-2 Rotor turns clockwise. You can easily find this out on any engine by removing the distributor cap and turning the engine over while observing the rotation of the rotor.

Do you determine engine rotation by facing the engine from the front or by stading behind it for the purpose of determining firing order?

Engine rotation is determined by sitting in the driver's seat. But engine rotation is of no consequence when determine firing order. It is the rotation of the rotor in the distributor that is important. That is easily found by removing the distributor cap and bumping the engine over and looking at the rotor. Does it rotate clockwise or counter clockwise?

When a helicopter tends to drift in the direction of tail rotor thrust it is called?

The tendency for a helicopter to drift in the direction of tail rotor thrust is called "Tail Rotor Drift" of "Translating Tendency".

How do counter rotating propellers on a helicopter increase the lift?

Counter rotating blades on a helicopter are used to replace the traditional tail rotor found on most aircraft. Because the blades oppose each other (and therefore cancel out the torque created by the other blade) a tail rotor is not necessary. This allows all of the engine's power to be used for lift rather than powering the additional rotor.

What direction does the rotor turn in a ford 6-cylinder?

Is there any helicopter without tail?

No, that is impossible. You see, helicopters must have that tail rotor in order to keep steady. Without one, it would spin out of control in the opposite direction that the main rotor is going. The tail rotor provides a counter form of propulsion that keeps the fuselage (body) of the copter from spinning out of control. The pilot also controls the speed and angle of the tail rotor, so as to turn the helicopter by speeding up or slowing it down. As for Chinooks, those big military helicopters with two main rotors, each rotor spins in the opposite direction to stop from entering a tailspin.

How the rotor is made to turn in a helicopter?

The engine is driving a transmission which turns the rotor
