On the second flight for the day the pilot took off with an identical load as on the first flight, but the aircraft would not climb after lift off. The aircraft was operating with a tailwind and it was suggested that a gust may have reduced aircraft performance. The pilot recognised the lack of performance immediately and commenced dumping the load, but the performance did not increase sufficiently to avoid contact with two fences and some scrub. Although the aircraft was damaged, the pilot was able to fly a circuit and land on the strip.
