I rolled it full right and managed to pull it out and cleared my car window by inches, my gf was able to duck in time... I immediately hit throttle hold and then it slammed into a fence. I had the same feeling though, going over and over what went wrong and not being able to pin point it. It happened too fast and in that second I couldn't see it, I didn't know why it suddenly snapped out of the bank.

Less learned: never fly into bright light or anywhere you might lose a visual on the heli.
Yeah, nothing puts a damper on the hobby more than the thought of hurting someone.
