    what happened? did you just lose perception of height?
    what was the damage? I can see the gimbal flying off in the video, was that all ?

    I was extremely lucky, the gimbal and frame separated without damage and 1 broken prop.

    What caused the altitude loss? was it just you ? or did it lose altitude on its own?

    It was user error, im used to having altitude control on triggers and not on the left stick so a combination of complacency and unfamiliarity led me to pull down on the stick while i was turning.
