The pilot didn't have much experience. 100 hours on type. 900 hours total. With that emerging level of experience he might have been feeling over confident leading up to the loss of control, but was overwhelmed by it all when his skill level was found to be less than that required to recover from the situation he got himself in. From the video I saw, the pilot was responsible for the demise of the helicopter.
