The pilot stated that at the end of the take-off run the wheels hit a 60cm high contour bank. He also reported that he misjudged the distance between the point at which the takeoff was commenced and the bank. The aircraft sustained substantial deformation damage to the landing gear attachment points and the carry through structure. The pilot had not calculated the distance required for takeoff, nor had he availed himself of all of the takeoff distance available. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
