What are your thoughts on this crash

Recommended Posts

I watched this video a number of times trying to understand where this went wrong. When you watch with the sound on and listen to what is going on while watching the position of the machine, I think he is in blade stall almost the entire flight.

However I would like to hear a few opinions from those with more experience than me.

It looks to me like an aggressive take off profile followed by an immediate turn downwind nearly caught the pilot out on the first time around but they managed to get it back into wind, I don’t think they could depart into wind for an extended take off profile as there are high tension wires in the background which look like they go across the flight path. On the subsequent turn downwind they weren’t so lucky, ran out of horses. I’m surprised that it wasn’t recoverable from that height, but there’s a lot of info not available from the video.
