0005304: AFM CH-47F explodes on the ground at moderate pitch angles
Maneuvering on/near the ground can cause a catastrophic failure if the pitch angle exceeds ~ 12 degrees.

Pilot CH-47f on the ground
1. Wheelbrake on
2. Engine on
3. Raise Collective to ~1/4
4. Gently pull back on the cyclic until the front wheels rise from the ground
5. Increase pitch by pulling farther back on the cyclic and applying additional collective as needed
6. Spontaneously Explode.
I think one of the defined rotorlib contact points is sticking out the back of the model. If it hits the ground the system decides its time to go boom.
No tags attached.

indeed, those ground contact points were setup looooong time ago when I still didn't have that much knowledge about RTD coord system. Tweaked it on rhs devbranch so feel free to test it later

Looks good, feels good.

Can wheelie until the rear blade strikes.
Can pinnacle without exploding.
Seems to have fixed random damage during taxi w/other mods on too.
