Default --NexSTAR bites it !

Well ive flown the plane at least 30+ times and im still fairly new at the hobby but i feel at times i have aced the nexSTAR , usally i can do loops / rolls with a ease, and i do have all the training stuff off the plane , speed brakes and so on . Anyway today it was a little windy but i flew anyway , Great flying too ,BUT i had to fly around upside down for a little bit , well that wasnt going bad either, was doing real good actually , but i slowed down the plane and i figured i would do a low pass fly by upside down ! Well the plane was only 5 feet off the ground and it was dropping , SO stupid me insetead of giving it some more gas in maintaing the flight to a safe leave and flipping it over, I tried to ROLL it over and .......... That didnt come out too good at all .........GRRRRRRRRRRR

Kinda looks like a movie set. Check for a loose connection between the pitch and yaw controls.
