NTSB Factual Report

The pilot was taking off from the remote dirt airstrip with a slight downhill slope and a slight tail wind. The pilot stated that he rotated too soon and the airspeed was too slow. He lost control immediately after liftoff and the airplane struck a fence, flipped inverted and struck terrain. There was substantial damage to the wing spar and wing strut. The pilot reported that there was no preimpact mechanical malfunction or failure.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to attain rotation speed prior to takeoff.
