Question EC130 FADEC Failures

Understanding that the Eurocopter EC130 has a dual channel FADEC, what are the requirements following a failure scenario?

For instance:

1. Channel 1 Fails - Do I ...
a. "Land as Soon as Possible"
b. "Land as Soon as Practical"?

2. Channel 2 Fails - Do I ...
a. "Land as Soon as Possible"
b. "Land as Soon as Practical"
c. Does control revert to manual?
d. Do I ride this screaming beast to earth?

Thanks in advance for the info!
