"I would lift very gingerly" ALWAYS a good idea unless somebody's shooting at you.


There are things that can fail in flight that coould cause, ahem- "dynamic divergent excitation" as Eurocopter preferred to call it. I guess it's not a bug but a feature that Eurocopters can shake themselves to bits before ground resonance.
