But the amount of neg is limited due to blade flex.

The problem is, that blades are so long, that they can't be that rigid. I am sure that a 500mm - 800 mm section of a full scale blade is VERY stiff, but when you take 6 - 10 METERS of blade, it is flexible.

As for dodging anything, that has to do with the speed and G available of what is coming after you. If you time it right, it would help, but realize most anti-aircraft missles use a proximity fuse, so they explode a ways from the target and the shrapnel cloud expands like a shotgun blast.
