The pilot reported that he touched down approximately one quarter of the way down the airstrip. He stated that "everything was normal and in a matter of a split second, the aircraft was upside down." He further stated that he felt "applying too much braking and the fact that [the airplane] has a high center of gravity may have contributed to the accident."
