Controlled Flight Into the Ground

From the AP50 AutoPilot Flight Control System Manual (pdf), an awesome failure mode:

Do not enter an airspeed value into the Dash parameter that the UAV cannot reliably sustain. Doing so may lead to controlled flight into the ground at maximum throttle and maximum airspeed.

Actually this thing is a pretty cool looking, low-cost auto pilot.
