Why a helicopter falling during auto-rotation could reach a terminal speed without the pilot changing any controls?

The helicopter begins to fall because gravity is pulling its weight. As the helicopter accelerates, the air passing past the helicopter creates drag, as the helicopter continues to accelerate the drag Increases until the drag becomes equal to the weight, stopping it from accelerating. Even if the helicopter did not auto rotate it would still reach a terminal speed, however the terminal speed for the non auto rotating helicopter would be a lot higher and the helicopter would take longer to reach this speed.

Some are, yes, but not all of them. Military attack helicopters tend to be the fastest. The average speed of a formula 1 car is 230 MPH. The average speed of an Apache attack helicopter is 365 MPH.

How does a helicopter turn?

By increasing or decreasing the speed of the tail rotors. This unbalances the torques acting on the helicopter and causes it to spin.

Why do helicopters fly so slow?

What is the limiting factor for helicopter speed you ask? What happens to the rotor as the velocity of the helicopter increases? The relative speed of the tips of the rotors changes because of the wind speed. On the advancing side of the rotor the speed increases by the speed of the helicopter. On the retreating side of the rotor the speed decreases by the speed of the rotor. One of two things happens as the helicopter reaches a high speed: A: If it is a large rotor, the advancing blade will reach the sound barrier and sap energy from the rotor, slowing it. Significant damage may occur to the helicopter. B: If it is a smaller rotor, the retreating blade will slow to the point where stall occurs, and the helicopter will be forced into a turn while losing altitude and decreasing speed, then it will usually recover if altitude permits. Option B can be mitigated by increasing rotor RPM at higher speeds. In this case the rotor speed becomes the limiting factor, as the centrifugal forces at the root of the blade are quite incredible.
