Gyroscopic Precession
== Gyroscopic Precession ==
This is the tedency tendency of a spinning object to precess or move about its axis when disturbed by a force. The engine and propeller act as a big gyroscope. However, gyroscopic precession is likely to be minimal in a typical aircraft.
Gyroscopic precession is frequenly frequently confused with p-factor.
One author maintains p-factor is caused by a combination of factors unrelated to gyroscopic precession http://home.earthlink.net/~x-plane/FAQ-Theory-PFactor.html
