That is the one! It didnt look like it took allot of damage in the video, but im sure it was more involved than it appeared.

Watching that video, really looks ver similar to multi engine airplanes that have the right engine inop and when they get to slow, they yaw and the flip inverted due to the assymetric thrust and drag. I bet since the edfs rotate the same direction, once the airspeed gets to slow it causes a large induced drag difference between the left and right, which is what causes the instability.
I say all that, bc ralfs appeared to be stable in yaw until the nose was pitched up for a steeper climb, then after a few seconds, the instability reared its head.
