Moonshine (Autorotation Bug)

Auto Credit Based on Ambarveis's Moonshine

Negative pitch + pusher heli prop. Seems like it triggers the autorotation feature, kinda funny though that I keep gaining altitude.

Start in air and just wait.

    @Ambarveis Good catch. It is primarily related to drag being capped, when it should be allowed to rise. It isn't as simple "don't cap it", though and would require some non-trivial time to fix. It would also impact all helicopters, not just ones like this. Unfortunately, I doubt it will be fixed with 1.8.

    @Tommy5939 no, the autorotation mechanic is of course a real life phenomenon, but the way the rotor 'autorotation' works is that it spins if the rotor 'falls', even if the rotors are in negative pitch, which ends up propelling the craft. I wonder how dear devs are going to patch this up.

    It might not be a bug because in real life a helicopters blade gains momentum and can glide down but it’s probably a bug it’s cool
