    Never thought about it that much- but makes sense.

    There might be fundamental airmanship involved in that picture.

    HERE is Evan reading procedure and engineering manuals to try and figure out what pilots do wrong:

    There are helicopters that even have FMS and autopilot with autohover, but they're uncommon. Many are IFR-equipped, but not certified.
