Ok, this is a slightly simplified version that ignores on purpose some effects, like gyroscopic precession. If you lower the flap when the blade is away from you, and rise it when it's toward you, it will lift up when away and lift down when near, tilting the plane of rotation towards you. So it will start to move towards you. A full scale helicopter manoeuvres in the same way.
