13-Oct-13 ZK-HUO Rotorway A600 Seddon, New Zealand

Lifting into a hover the pilot noticed the needles were at the bottom of the green range, and while more power was added, the pilot also applied pedal to face into wind. This resulted in a faster decay of power available, with the aircraft loosing height, then landing heavily and rolling over. The main rotor blades and tail boom were destroyed.
