What is autorotation? Is it when you loose power and still have enough control to land safely? Also is this only with belt drive heli?

Don't talk to me you will make me crash

I am no Pro at Heli's but I will try to explain. Autorotation is when the engine fail's or you loose power i.e. loose fuel or battery power the main shaft diconnects from your power sorce. At this point the relative wind turns your rotor as you fall to earth building energy, so when you get close to the ground you can apply collective pitch to land safely. Same with a real heli. I tryed to explain! bladecprepair.com has information on a autorotation mod for the CP, I am going to put it on my CP.
