We've done TONS of research on Sonic's speed over the years. From how fast he REALLY is to if he can even survive his own speed - we've covered it all! Well, that's only partially true. Until now we've only turned our Theorist eyes towards the blue hedgehog. That ends today! Enter Tails, the lovable fox sidekick. He's famous for helicoptering his way around with his, you guessed it, tails. What I wanted to know was whether or not Tails SHOULD actually be able to fly. Today Theorists, we are going to find out if this fox is flying high or about to crash and burn!
Check our sources below to learn even more about helicopter physics!

I'm an aircraft maintenance technician and I would like to point somethings about helicopters. The main rotor controls mostly of the helicopter movements, the tail rotor does an anti-torque effect to keep the craft stable. That said, drones, as well as some helicopters don't have tail rotors because they would have 2, or more, main rotors (but always an even number). The thing is, these rotors would spin on different direction, so, one would counter the torque effect of the other. You might be wondering what does that have to do with our might friendly fox? Well, the way it seems from the animation of his tails (when flying), they reassemble what we would see on an intermeshing (crossing) rotor configuration. So, in other words, both tails would rotate, but each one on a different direction (one clockwise, the other, counterclockwise). And just like that rotor configuration works, both would be responsible for the helicopter movement and therefore there is no need for a tail rotor
wait, couldn't tails rotate his tails opposite directions somehow?

Tails weirdly can spin his feet for...some...reason so he can fly but he does have actually have a second pair of tails a smaller pair a few centimeters behind his main pair so he could fly...technically

Idea: Tails could make a device that lifts him of the ground like his tails would, but he would use his tails as the way to stop him from spinning around in circles and crashing into everything.
