Crash after total loss of control

I crashed my Yak yesterday.
It was my 4th flight, the 2nd of the day.
I was flying for about 2 minutes, then pulled into a high stall and nosed her over.
At that point I had no control over anything and the plane came down nose first from about 150'. I was in total disbelief and still don't know what went wrong.

A couple of other pilots said they would disable the on-off switch on theirs, thinking it was one more thing that could go wrong.
Another pilot said he would add a remote bec. Both good ideas.

I wrote to Horizon and am waiting to hear back. I'll probably have to buy another one, modify it per above and try it again, ouch to the wallet!
