Default Autorotation w/TREX 250

Been trying to practice autos using the TREX 250 model, but about 2/3rds of the time as soon as i hit throttle hold the blades stop dead right away. Is there a better model to practice autos with that would still be representative of a small model with low rotor inertia? Is there some parameter that I can tweak?

try the honey bee king 2. its one of my fav helis in phoenix. its quite abit easier to auto than the 250 but not as easy as the 450 pro. i find the gap in flying difficulty between the 250 and 450 too high and the honeybee fills the gap well. i find the 250 annoying. it shoots away from you, or falls like a stone, and makes difficult manuevers nearly impossible. are real ones really that bad? it cant be size as my mcpx was much slower and more controllable than the sim 250

trick with the honeybee king is lower the weight to about 500 grams, as they got the weight wrong, and improve the tail hold, as they intentionally set it up like a real hbk2 - ie, with rubbish tail authority. set up well, its a fun heli IMO.
