No argument, Mag. All of the turning to the left could be either jammed left pedal or LTE. The gyrations are not inconsistent with the spatial disorientation that can accompany associated turning. However, the turning isn't too drastic, which could point to some other loss of control, possibly hydraulics.

From Pitchlink's link you can tell the a/c had an emergency inflight well before the hover. Thus ruling out LTE. All turns left indicate what the pilot related to witness that he had a t/r problem. Looks as though he did a good job at trying to put the bird down on top of building rather than busy street. I couldn't tell if t/r was turning but even if it was and the aircraft had jammed left pedal is as hard if not harder to control then loss of drive.



Also, inconsistant gyrations are consistant with input from collective and cyclic in an attempt to slow down rate of turn, looks to me like t/r problem.
