Just wondering if the cyclic in a real helicopter re-centers like a joystick for a computer?
I'm pretty sure the controls in a fixed wing re-centers due to natural physics if the plane is in dynamically stable flight, without the detent (extra force required to overcome fine-grained controls at the center).
Do the controls in a helicopter re-center in the same way? Not sure because I consider helicopters to be fundamentally unstable. I'm also curious about the center detent (if there is one) in a helicopter.
