Narrative:
The pilot was attempting to take off from an eight metre wide road. He initially aligned the aircraft so that it was pointing to the left of the intended takeoff path, to avoid a tree just off the side of the road. Just after full power was applied, as the pilot was realigning the aircraft after passing the tree, the left main gear overran a windrow on the edge of the road and the aircraft ran off the road. It mounted a one metre high dirt mound and rolled inverted.
