Send us a track. We can tell you what's wrong with your flight. Probably you fly too fast and/or you turning hard to right.

If you pay attention, if you fly faster, your upper and lower rotors come closer each other. You need to take care about it.

There's overspeed warning light on upper-left dash and it beeps of course but, no indicator for rotors. You'll learn it overtime.

Plus, you don't need overspeeding to crash rotors. A very hard right turning can be cause that issue. Be careful on your stick movements.

Altitude will also have an effect. You can be really rough with the helicopter near ground level, but if you're 3,000m up, you have to handle the helicopter very gingerly.

Oh yeah, rotor blade salad, an old friend of mine.

EinsteinEP wrote a great explanation of what happens, and why:

you must watch the chopper in flight, you must save and re run every mission you have screwed up due to pilot error. Once the mechanics of the engine is understood.... you will realise that left is right and right is wrong!

Because Airflow will create more lift and more lift Creates more upflex of the Rotor Blade.

So if you fly forward with an Helicopter the blade which is moving forward into the Airflow will create more lift + more upward flex than the blade which is going out of the Airflow.
So on an KA-50 Helicopter in fast forward flight the lower rotor disk (Counter clockwise rotating) will create more lift on the right side whilst the upper Rotordisk(Clockwise rotating) will do on the left, which does bend them into each other.


For sure this can happen in maneuvers too. Regardless your speed.


You can see this in the outside view F2 just compare Hover to Fast forward flight appearance.
