Recognize components of the tail rotor system and their function.
Stainless steel rotor blades, Pitch Change Horns transmit pitch changes to the Blades from the pitch change links, Cross head transmits pitch changes from control tube to the pitch change links, Control tube transmits pitch changes through the gear box to the cross head, Balance Wheel Static Stop, Yoke Assembly.
Described the sequence of events with a tail rotor input.
Right pedal input is transmitted via a push-pull tube to the pitch change mechanism mounted on the tail rotor gearbox. The pitch-change mechanism consists of a Lever, Control Tube, Crosshead, and Pitch Change Links. Right pedal causes the control tube to extend and pushes the crosshead away from the yoke assembly and right pedal decreases pitch……. Left pedal increases pitch.
