Narrative:
During takeoff, the pilot opened the throttle to get up to speed, however the aircraft did not seem to be performing, despite the gauges reading okay. The pilot decided to abort the takeoff, however it was too late to pull up before the end of the runway. The aircraft went through a ditch and several bushes, coming to a stop approximately 45m from the end of the runway. After inspection, it appeared that the handbrake of the aircraft may have been engaged.
