A sideslip developed and the aircraft began to rapidly lose altitude. When increasing the engine power to the maximum, the aircraft (according to the pilot's testimony) remained difficult to control, the sideslip became even greater, and with a high vertical speed, the aircraft collided with the ground with an angle of about 25-30 degrees and a bank of 20-25 degrees to the right and rolled over with its wheels due to inertia in the air and suffered serious damage.

Cause: "insufficient pilot skill and practical flight experience."
