Did you figure out what happened? Usually, one motor (possibly a bearing) hangs up and causes the flip. Glad nothing was damaged too bad!

its was possibly the wind, it was rather windy and the gusts were getting stronger so I was coming down to land, I think it got hit with a extra strong gust, which it could not handle and flipped it.

but then again I was struggling with the controls just before the crash, so its possible that one or more of the motors were playing up, I wont know that until I get the thing repaired and test fly it.
