There’s no strobe light going on, just light bulbs.
Yeah, the effect you describe isn’t happening with an LCD screen.
It’s interesting seeing the effect in your link and the video. It says the animation in the link is being rendered at 20 frames per second, and the camera in the video is recording at 24 frames per second.
In your video and mine, the rotor speed has to be very tightly controlled to be in lock-step with the camera’s frame rate like that. IANA rotorhead, but I’ll wager the speed is on automatic closed-loop control, with the computer calling for more/less fuel to the turbine as needed to keep the rotor RPM within an extremely tight range regardless of the amount of collective or cycling the pilot is commanding.
The viewer comments under the video you linked to are priceless.
Nearly all helicopter rotors are of the constant-speed variety, with the allowable variation within only a few percent of the nominal speed.
But “very tight” control isn’t hard for a couple of reasons. The rotor’s enormous inertia tends to damp out any small or slow changes in drag and engine torque. Also, turbine engines respond quite slowly to throttle inputs even when they’re not attached to helicopter rotors. Both these things tend to keep the rotor turning at a very steady speed. (The helicopter in the linked video is indeed turbine-powered).
As an aside, a helicopter-pilot friend of mine says that many people prefer to learn to fly on piston-engine helicopters. Because piston engines respond much more quickly to throttle inputs than turbine engines do, beginners can add power to get out of sticky situations much sooner than they could in a turbine-engine helicopter).
