You think he's kidding, right? I have successfully auto-rotated a heli in a panic situation. I have never
been able to do anything but a face-plant in a power-off situation with the Beast. You need better timing than I've got! If you pull out of the required vertical descent too soon or too late it just doesn't work. That's assuming you have time to get the nose down and speed up in the first place!
