After a normal touchdown the aircraft started drifting to the right with a crosswind from the left. The pilot applied left rudder but the aircraft departed the runway surface to the right and flipped inverted as it came to rest. The pilot assessed that he may not have been holding sufficient into-wind left aileron after touchdown.
