The bucket tip path, which is shown in Figure 11, shows that the PI controller can also perform a grading operation but its error is larger than that of the sliding mode controller.
The desired and actual bucket tip paths for the manipulator controlled by the sliding mode controller are compared in Figure 6.

I looked up and saw what looked like an abnormal blade tip path plane.
I confirmed that I felt the helicopter moving up-and-down and that I noticed the tip path plane had an exaggerated jump.
The main rotor tip path was erratic but controllable, and the engine instruments did not indicate that a bird had been ingested.
This study investigated the effects of the static radial force applied by ring debarker tips to frozen balsam fir logs, and tip path overlap on debarking quality.
The specific purpose of this investigation was to quantify and compare debarking quality resulting from two tip path overlap factors (i.e., feed speeds) and three different radial force levels.
The analysis showed that radial force affected all three debarking parameters, while the effect of tip path overlap was only significant for the proportion of bark remaining on logs.
Tip path overlap was set by modifying the feed speed of the debarker while the rotation speed of the ring remained constant.
It was dark outside, and I couldn't see the tip path of the rotor blades.
