The report states that several minutes after takeoff, the pilot reported that he was unable to control the RPM (revolutions per minute) of the engine. The report's findings expand upon initial reports that the helicopter pilot experienced mechanical issues prior to crashing.
In a report obtained by TMZ, the NTSB revealed that the pilot lost control of the aircraft when the engine would not respond to throttle inputs.
The report says the pilot, 1000 feet up, made a decision to perform an emergency procedure called an autorotation - in which the rotor turns from upward airflow, without the engine. Robinson initiated the autorotation at 950 feet.
"During the descent, the rotor rpm decayed to the point where the instructor could see the individual rotor blades", the report said.
