NTSB Factual Report

The pilot attempted a crosswind takeoff with winds 60 degrees off runway heading at 24 knots gusting to 34 knots. Unable to keep the airplane on the runway centerline the pilot reportedly elected to exit the downwind side of the concrete runway onto the grass. As the airplane exited the runway's edge it nosed over and came to rest in an inverted position. The airplane's wings and vertical stabilizer sustained structural damage. There were no reported mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane's flight controls.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's inadequate compensation for the wind conditions during takeoff.
