Ain't this place great... can we get them weighted too?

I went and got some education ...
AMA SCALE HELICOPTER rules:
9.3: Translational Landing. Minimum altitude of eight (8) meters the helicopter will begin a translational straight-line descent or autorotation to a soft landing on the helipad. (Maximum 10 points).
*Autorotation Option: Should a contestant wish to end his flight with a autorotation maneuver he may substitute it for the Translational Landing for a possible fifteen (15) point bonus. (Maximum 25 points).

9.4. Scale Freestyle (Maximum 70 points). 9.5 Auto Rotation Option. Should a contestant wish to end his/her freestyle flight with an auto rotation maneuver to the scale helipad, he/she may do so for a potential bonus of up to 15 points.

SOOO...As a scale planker pilot, who has "played the scale points game"... I can see why A scale heli pilot looking to bag some points WOULD do that.....an autorotation... but I would think one would lose scale points on ....realism , not like your going to ever see a full size do that on a normal flight...I do know they practice sometimes... crashing

I have and have had a number of scale heli's over the years from 30 size with 550mm blades to 90 size with 710mm blades and have loved autoing all of them.

As most people do not see scale helis auto, they usually appreciate it when they do see it.
