It seems like it, as apparently the owner was not the builder, had no PPL, no medical, the aircraft was not registered, and had not been inspected by anyone. It seems like Dan got a lot of information from a fellow a hangar or two down from the pilot, and had suggested a CG check and was of the opinion it was tail-heavy. In my mind sure, that is possible, it is also possible the pilot gave far too much control input and simply stalled due to inexperience.Dan is not familiar with the type.
From "Thread Drift" pages, post #5 "Latest example: Two CFI pilots in a Cessna 150 did a 180 mile distant out and return last week and it was great fun, but then the destination was an airport (KALW) for a day of motor gliding. We wouldn't do that by car. "
That day of motor gliding was done in a Monet Xenox CLS which looks to be the model in the video.
A check of weight and balance was a part of the pre-flight and we were mid range.
FWIW - The airplane flew fine.
Don't know why the accident plane was so far out of the CG range. This looks to be a "Darwin Crash".
I can't say I have ever looked at any of the Monet planes, so am 100% unfamiliar with them and thier tendencies.
