I just want to clarify a few points in your post:if you are going to have to be adjusting cyclic in any matter, why have all the drag of a twisted HS and unwanted counter torque after loss of power, when by just tilting the rotor disk to the side to counteract the engine torque offers the most manically simplest, lightest and stable solution and no need to hold hand pressure until you have a power loss?
If the twist of the propeller flow is rectified par le HS, then the rotational kinetic energy is recovered, as Chuck said in post #104 . This means that the drag of the horizontal tail is reduced instead of being increased. Here's how:
