A lot of Russian designed propellor aircraft have the prop turning the opposite direction. This appears to be one of them, as the propellor is spinning anticlockwise from the view of inside the aircraft. » 11/05/14 12:29pm 11/05/14 12:29pm

I think the major issue with the VRS was that only one side would enter VRS and cause significant, asymmetrical instability. This would cause the aircraft to roll into the vortex ring, which would be compensated by the pilot by rolling away, increasing power on the side with the vortex ring, which would worsen the… » 10/20/14 3:42pm 10/20/14 3:42pm
