C172 crash at Bartlett Il near KDPA (3 July 2015)

Pilot reported rudder trouble after coming back to DPA from a touch and go at Schaumburg airport. Callsign N62681

Audio has garbled ground comms at the start at DPA where the flight originated. Pilot did at least 2 T/G’s at DPA and then headed to Schaumburg. On the return, checked in and reported a rudder issue. Never declared an emergency.

Audio also contains radio traffic after the crash of the headache that 4 news choppers and a traffic plane can cause when circling an incident just outside of the tower airspace.

Have a listen to this recording – and especially take note of the traffic from the media after the actual incident. Do you think this extra traffic caused issues immediately after this incident?
