Default DREAM FLIGHT turns into DISASTER

This is what can happen in less then 15 min, turning a Dream Flight into FPV pilot's Nightmare, followed by crash.
FPV Tricopter with GoPro Hero HD camera was flown via video downlink, using Dragonlink RC system.

For me - completelly loosing visability, while flying that beast which doesn't have any self leveling ability, was a real nightmare :-)
