You remember wrong.
The FTI report is a brief summary of the circumstances and factual information known at this time. It does not provide full details surrounding the accident, which is still under investigation.
At this point, the investigation has determined the aircraft was returning from a routine surface reconnaissance mission followed by additional training (flight deck evolutions) for aircrew proficiency prior to landing on HMCS Fredericton. The helicopter had flown by the port side of the ship, from stern to bow, before making a left hand turn to establish a downwind leg in preparation for approach to the ship. The aircraft then commenced a final left turn to set-up for the approach. During this final complex manoeuvring turn to close with the ship, the aircraft did not respond as the crew would have anticipated. This event occurred at a low altitude, was unrecoverable, and the aircraft entered a high energy descent and impacted the water astern the ship.
Mechanical failure was ruled out though, wasn't it? That was my point, I couldn't remember what exactly happened regarding it being pilot error, weather related, etc, but I did say that " nothing on the bird failed", as I remember having read that in several places/times, and that is correct, now that I've gone and read your link, and looked up ones I read last year, and others more recent. Both Janes and FlightGlobal said that the fleet was cleared due to the crash not being a mechanical failure, after the link you provided. There are a couple other articles that link previous software issues from 2017 to the crash, but they are hypothetical.
