The consensus of the SpaceX YouTubers is that this was the best test flight ever as the flight was groundbreaking and then having a crash on the landing for an early test flight was more enjoyable than a good landing.

Everyday Astronaut- “that was the coolest thing ever”.

Elon says fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn.

Successful ascent, switchover to header tanks & precise flap control to landing point! https://t.co/IIraiESg5M

Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed! Congrats SpaceX team hell yeah!!
