    VSKYLABS Cicare-8 Project Cyclic Design

    The VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot': Cicare-8 Project cyclic engineering info and screen shot.

    Due to several questions regarding the Cicare-8 cyclic design and construction, here is a screen shot showing the removable left-side-handle being removed. This is of course optional and the handle can be placed back on the fly.

    In addition, each side tilt-angle (up/down) can be adjusted independently, for maximum grip comfort (very practical in VR+touch controllers operations, when the hand may be supported on the right leg, when the helicopter is being flown from the left seat). When not being used, the handle is self-pushed to the upper position, to get cleared from obstacles such as passenger legs etc.

    The governor switch may be noticed inside the collective front gap. The governor is fully functional, and the VSKYLABS Cicare-8 may be flown *manually*, where the throttle should be managed in-flight, or *engaged*, where the governor is managing throttle input. Flying with the governor engaged is the preferred way to fly the Cicare-8.
