Paraphrased from Dave Thornburg's Old Buzzard's Soaring Book:

2) Close your eyes.
3) Start dreaming of a new plane.

My very first rc helicopter (a coax) used to suffer frequent brownouts. Essentially it would turn itself into a free flight model. The problem finally went away when I swapped out a servo for a new one.
