Interesting - I've only heard of diving forward to get out of it, but this adds a new twist. Thanks for sharing

Going left or right depends on the machines rotor system direction of rotation. I havent seen any mention of what happens if you forget that and go the other way. The video was quite impressive though with the spray system going I thought.

It made the airflow very graphic - great video
