Anybody have an idea why he wrecked like that? Seemed like a typical turn and he just lost lift?? Maybe he did something with the blades to allow it to go forward faster that decreased the lift, and then he forgot to change it? (Is that even possible on a helicopter?)

Just curious.

Only a Cobra. They're old and inexpensive.
Had it been an Apache - ooofmph.

I'm curious myself.

I do know helicopters have a very dangerous dead zone between 20ft and 100ft off the deck wherein they can get caught in their own turbulent downdraft, spoiling the airflow over the blades, and robbing the helo of lift.

Any kind of low flight maneuvering is the most dangerous and difficult. The collective and flight controls can be touchy and should ish hit the fan, there's not enough height to auto-rotate it in.

Wild guess: Over aggressive low level bank, blades at 45 degrees, he hit his own turbulence lost a % lift and there wasn't enough time for the blades to bite into the air ... BOOM!

That's only at hover.

Over=banked too long. Needed to level out sooner to get vertical lift.

So if I translated correctly, he was hot dogging and turned too long. While turning he didn't generate lift, started the fall. Then he didn't level out quick enough to recover and basically plowed into the ground.

Big $$$ ooopsie.

yes, basically. I am not sure what is the fastest helicopter currently - used to be british lynx that I think did first inverted maneuvers - but basically they are in a "controlled" flip of sorts.

The cobra pilot in the film needed another 75 feet to pull that turn off. He did not lose list or hit a vortex, gravity got in the way.

Helicopters are terrible things at low speed and hovering in general. Big ones like chinook helicopters are actually faster, and more stable than that cobra or even an apache. I do not think anyone has ever inverted a chinook intentionally though, nor done a commercial chasing a car around.

Chinooks are actually the coolest helicopter we have. Apaches look the best and can kill anything but they have a range of like 5 miles. I think Chinooks are orbiting the planet currently.

Imagine that...the Asian driver wasn't the one that wrecked.

Way to mess with the stereotypes.
