For the negative G part, if you have speed just push the stick forward.
The only problem is that doing that from the cruise, you very quickly end up pointing at the ground with rapidly increasing speed.

A combination of lowering the lever and cyclic forward 'bunt' is the 'safer' way - many military crewmen have been weightless briefly in the back of helicopters like that.

Reminds me of the old promotional film "BO-105 - The flying Tiger" by MBB. Note the desert camo.

Did that during 2K hrs on the BO during the 90’s and some years on in the anti tank role . After a bunch of years on bigger ‘busses’, I now sit in the H145D3 after retirement from the Air force three days ago :-)
Somehow the burglar always return to the crime scene :-)

Did my 105 course at the factory in 1978. The groundschool was delivered by a guy called von Englehardt - mate of aforementioned Herr Hoffman, and one of the original project pilots.

He told many stories about the flight test programme. A couple of exchanges will stay with me for ever -

“Ve climbed to 5000’ und ve svitched off ze tail rotor”.
”Why?”
”To see vot vould happen, of course!”

Apparently they built a clutch into the driveshaft for precisely that reason!

And……

”Is it possible to control the 105 without any hydraulics?”

”Ja. Von pilot mit both hands on ze cyclic, und von pilot mit both hands on ze collective.”

Respect. They don’t make ‘em like that any more!

No, SAS, that was not me in that movie. Crew was Kurt Cannon Project Pilot on the 67 and Byron Graham, Ch. Engr. Pilot ( who had done the CH-53 loops/rolls movie with then Major Bob Guay, USMC ).
I was inducted into the 67 program just before the demo trip around the US in 1971 as the Project Pilot was unable to travel. Stayed with it after that and did the Europe/Iran demo trip in 1972, both with Byron. Byron was a gem. No matter who was on the schedule to receive a ride, he would fly a tank of fuel with whoever was scheduled, then I’d get the next tankful of front seaters. Got to fly some very interesting people: perhaps General Adolf Galland being the most noteworthy. He was amazing: showed him how to do a split s and a roll and then he did both and the aircraft didn’t know the difference. The picture of the S-67 flying on a sunny day with the Cologne Cathedral below in the background was with General Galland flying it from the front seat. Everyone got the same routine incl those maneuvers and a 3-4 second zero G parabolic push ( well, you know who the competition was at the time ).
