The aircraft was taking off from an Authorized Landing Area for a local flight. The weather was fine and calm, with a temperature of 16 degrees Celsius. The pilot reported that after a takeoff run of 300 metres the engine lost power. The takeoff was abandoned and wheel braking applied. At the same time, in a further attempt to reduce speed, the pilot steered the aircraft towards the right side of the strip, where the grass was longer. The nose wheel entered soft ground, resulting in the propeller striking the surface and the aircraft gently overturning. The reason for the loss of power was not determined.
