I'm including this video completely out of peer pressure.
By this time I only had a handful of flights under my belt, so I couldn't understand why I had gotten sucked toward the ground....twice. Very embarrassing. Later I found out about the vortex ring anomaly resulting from the rotor downwash, which can quickly pull you down into the ground from a hover before you can even react if you don't descend carefully and slowly.
I've already taken my fair share of abuse over this flight even before I put it up here, but it's still entertaining, if cringe-worthy, to watch.
