PROBABLE CAUSE: Continual increase of pitching up attitude during overshoot which lead to the stalling of the aircraft at an insufficient height for recovery.
Contributing were the inaccurate calculation of the CG position before takeoff and the possibility of movement of the ballast weight aft during flight.
