    I noticed that when the helo flipped over, it looked like the landing gear were down. That is likely why it didn't rise up correctly from the water.

    It looks like he pushed the nose forward expecting it to climb but due to the extra drag created by the gear being down, the nose went forward but no altitude was gained.

    i dont think the gear would cause that much of a problem but it looks like he should rotated the opposite way instead of digging his nose in which more then likely flooded so it appears to me
