Low 'G' Manoeuvres
The rotor blades spinning in autorotation need positive 'G' force for them to spin.
Any reduction in 'G' force will result in the blades slowing down.
In more severe situations, loss of control can result.
Low 'G' situations can result from pushing forward at the top of a climb, similar to going over a hill very fast in a car.
