If you land, without having the Gear extended, you will kind of sink into the ground, blow up, and then get catapulted up in the air.

Take a Helicopter with retractable landing-gear and try to land.
it happens in any game, ArmA 2, ACE, DayZ, TKOH, for some reason the game thinks that water can blow you up. You are better ejecting from the aircraft before touchdown and swimming away
Had the issue as well.
and it's not in water, it sinks trough the ground.
I also tried auto rotating down which works like a dream, landed softly without damage, then the heli tilted and the rotor hit the ground. instant explosion.... which makes auto rotation still more or less impossible....
