I’m not entirely sure what happened here. The plane was fine and then … it just really wanted to climb. It put its nose all the way up and stalled and I could not get control before it spiraled to the ground, nose first. Here’s the onboard video, if you want to follow along at home.
I’m wondering if the battery might have come loose from the velcro, falling backwards and shifting the CG way back. It was certainly loose when I got there!
The good news is that, so far at least, it’s all going back together pretty well.
