Report  Web desk : NEW YORK: Aerospace manufacturer Bell Helicopter unveiled their rotorcraft concept at Heli-Expo in Dallas, Texas this week. The FCX-001 aircraft frame is made from advanced sustainable materials, a hybrid power system, with a piloting system that can be controlled through augmented reality and an artificial intelligence computer assistant. The passenger cabin has individualized entertainment systems, allowing passengers to watch TV, hold video conference calls and share documents with other passengers. The aircraft has an anti-torque system in the tail boom designed to improve safety, reduce noise and improve its performance. Torque is a force that is the reaction of the rotor spinning around. When the engine turns the rotor, there is an equal and opposite force that tries to turn the helicopter itself in the opposite direction. 02
