Narrative:
While training for an airshow, the pilot inadvertedly entered a flat spin. He tried to gain the control of the aircraft and exit the spin but was unable to do so. He reported the right rudder pedal is stuck and seconds later crashed still in flat spin. The pilot was very experienced and did unlimited aerobatics on a daily basis. After crash a problem on the right rudder command was found but it remains to be established if this was a contributing factor.
