NASA has done amazing things with airbags. I think that's the way to go. You just need to turn 100Gs into 10Gs for a fraction of a second.

The problem with escape is that helicopters fly too near the ground most of the time. You can't pop out without stopping the rotors and I wouldn't want to design in a rotor jettison system. Too complex. What if you hit the blue button by accident? Then you need a rotor retrieval device.
