Crashed shortly after installing a new prop. This accident is a little troubling to me, because the available pictures look like it came straight down on it’s roof, which is really odd for a Velocity. Maybe there’s something that the pictures don’t show, but it doesn’t seem to have skidded or tumbled.
UPDATE: After reading the NTSB report, it appears the propellor disintegrated, likely breaking the engine mount – which caused the weight of the engine to shift too low in the back for controllable flight, and the plane impacted top down nearly vertically.
