It has nothing to do with Autos. By cutting the throttle you immediately lock the blade in the min throttle condition; usually negative. So by cutting throttle you just threw it to the ground instead of cutting throttle with the hold, and feathering the pitch to your advantage.
If you get in the throttle stick cut habit, its harder to un learn it.
