In a written statement, the pilot reported that after departure he practiced configuring the airplane for slow-flight and performed numerous stalls. As the airplane approached the destination airport, he entered the traffic pattern on a 45-degree angle. He extended his downwind leg to yield to traffic ahead and observed the windsock indicating a light crosswind. While on final approach, he configured the airplane with a little left rudder in an effort to compensate for the wind conditions. Following touchdown, and while on the landing roll with the engine at idle, the airplane began to yaw to the left of runway centerline. The pilot added full right rudder deflection and then applied right brake. The airplane nosed over, coming to rest inverted; the propeller and left wing sustained damage.

The pilot stated there were no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airframe or engine. He stated during the accident sequence the winds were light and variable with no gusts.
