The gyro of the Lockheed Rigid Rotor System fulfills two separate functions. First, it works as a mechanical autopilot which stabilizes the motion of the aircraft. Secondly, it functions as a device which counteracts and compensates external, one per rev. excitations of the rotor blade such as produced by a gust. The paper deals with the latter aspects. It describes the system and investigates the steady‐state and transient response to various types of excitations.
