You lost throttle it looks like. That's not solely a stall. I have an Apprentice with an AR500 rx. I was setting up for a landing and coming out of the base leg, the throttle dropped off and the plane was stuck in a shallow left turn, rudder and all. The plane recovered as it hit the ground. So a popped the firewall off and rolled out on the mains anyway.

Yes it seems like the motor throttled down,plane slowed down but it appeared to be flying above stall speed, Did you throttle down at that point? If not maybe you got hit or maybe there are some loose connections.

Could be a few things. Most likely a brown out. The plastic 15 motor should be swapped for a better 15 size motor
