Required Arguments

Returns

Returns the rotor speed if successful. This is 0 when the helicopter is parked, and about 0.2 when it is fully spun up. It can be negative if the rotor rotates counter-clockwise. Returns false in case of failure (an invalid element or a vehicle element that is not a helicopter was passed).
