I realize it is Top Gear Korea but is that the privately owned AH-1 here in the States?

EDIT: yes it was.

I think it was power failure, not really the pilot's fault.

Looks like that turn at the end was a little tight.

Good thing no one was killed, that ground crew sure ran in a hurry.

Hydraulic system failure locked up the controls while he was banking, so sayeth the current NTSB report on the crash.

Where does it say anything about a power failure, anywhere?

It looks to me like he simply dumped it.

Nevermind, post above me covers it.

Also found my new fangled ignore button, I love this thread.

There are old pilots, and bold pilots....

The old pilots are the ones who stay toward the middle of the air, and avoid the edges. For the edge of the air is defined by things like mountains, and earth.
