Coming in for landing. Seemed to be coming in harder and faster than normal. Looked up and noticed that left brake had come out of hand. (throttle was in this hand so I couldn’t tell by feel). I reached up grabbed it and commenced a flare. Flare was unsuccessful and hit the ground hard.

It’s possible that my trims were out. This is what I recall, but when I opened up my wing two months later my trims were not out.
