What The Heck Happened?

This week on What the Heck Wednesday we have a video of a Tower Hobbies Edge 540 with a camera in the cockpit providing a first person view of the crash at the end. The plane was humming along with the Tower .75 glow engine, but it pulls up, rolls over and heads for the ground in a hurry. The video description says the crash appears to be a loss of control on the left aileron, but all the electronics worked after the crash. It looks to me more like a stall, but who knows. It's interesting to watch the crash from the perspective of the plane though.

So what you do guys think? What the heck happened on this one?

If you have a video of a weird or entertaining crash and would like to be featured on What the Heck Wednesday, please send me a PM with your submission.

pilot got disoriented I think , that sort of wing over turn followed by the aileron wobble and the limp pull on the elevator and it never looked like the plane slowed down a lot and never got commited to a course of action after losing tracking

I am inclined to agree, loss of orientation.
