Rotor RPM (RRPM)
Rotor RPM in flight is not usually a constant value.
It depends on a few things which will make it speed up or slow down.
To put simply, if the rotors sense a stronger pull underneath them, they will speed up, if they sense a reduced pull, they will slow down.
For instance, the rotors will spin faster if the weight of the gyro is heavier due to larger crew or more fuel.
