Sorry world, I f***ed it up. Beautiful weather but insane cross wind with proper gusts. I was "sloping" above the tree line when strong gust flipped the plane on its back. with less than 5m from the tree tops there wasn't much I could do. The sound it made hitting the tree at high speed was insane..
