Helicopters have rotors for lift. Vtol uses ducted jets.
No - amongst other things (other than a helicopter or VTOL) aircraft require forward momentum to produce air movement across (and under) the wings to produce lift.
Both use the pressure difference caused by air moving over the wings at different speeds to generate lift; a plane by moving those wings in the direction of travel, a helicopter by spinning the "wings" around at high speed. This requies that the plane be in constant forward motion in order for the wings to make lift. Thus airplanes must roll along the runaway to take-off. A helicopter cant take off at zero forward speed and hover at zero forward speed. The helicopter can land and take off vertically. Thus, they are good for landing in unimproved spots such as done by air ambulances.
For the helicopter body to be in balance and direction to steer the helicopter.
difference between electrical & electrinics
What is the difference between petroleum and petrochemical?
Probably any helicopter or VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VTOL
There is no difference, "chopper" is slang for 'helicopter'
Semantics. -A helicopter IS a rotorcraft and vice-versa.
There is no helicopter on Main Street. The inventor lets you use his VTOL jet to travel to the various cities to play the game shows.
its designed different that's like asking whats the difference between a f-15 and a f-16 two different aircraft
All blackhawks can be combat helicopters, but not all combat helicopters are blackhawks.
At Moscow, you have to help the robot with the colored windows to signal the helicopter to land. (see related question) You use a vertical-takeoff (VTOL) jet to travel to the various cities for the games.
CHOPPER is only a slang word of HELICOPTOR...
In 1907 Paul Cornu was experimenting with a vertical lift rotor blade system and performed the first VTOL (vertical take off and landing) flight, thus inventing the first helicopter. The helicopter was initially an idea by Leonardo Da Vinci. he developed an ornithocopter which set the basis for the structure of the modern Helicopter
A VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) aircraft is one that can takeoff and land like a helicopter, but fly like a plane. A good example is the V-22 Osprey.
Hover VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) aircraft can hover as well as helicopters, but helicopters can do it more efficiently and, therefore, can do it for longer periods.
