    the two. Helicopter blades are initially pitched like fan blades yet create raise like plane wings. The blades are additionally variably pitched so the helicopter can pitch and roll however the yaw is controlled by potential of the tailrotor, which additionally acts like a fan and plane wings different than controlled with the rudder pedals.
