Basically, there are 2 solutions:

  1. Model needs to be adjusted upwards; this breaks mission backwards compatibility (helicopters will fall on spawn).
  2. Add ground contact memory points (and I think they must be defined in the RotorLib XML).

I don't really have time or wish to work on AFM compatibility for helicopters that I don't personally, but if anyone else wants to, glad to give some pointers of what I have learned in the past.
