If you are Gunner in a heli and have fly controls, climb
up, turn on autohover, then release controls, the heli automatically
starts falling to the ground.
i think the heli should stay in its position.
if this would work, you could use all the weapons, as they
are made for, just with only one man in a two-seated chopper.
for example: if the pilot is dead, with the actual system you can't
really fight back with all the weapons.
