Hi Guys,

I have been recently looking at the London Air Ambulance site, checking out their helicopter, as it landed the other day in the park across the road from work. http://www.londonsairambulance.co.uk/about-us/the-helicopter

and I noticed it didn't have a tail rotor, how does this work? is it using exhaust gasses from the turbine to counter reacte torque?
