Narrative:
At 150 feet on climb out, the engine began running rough and lost power. As paddocks were available, a steady turn was initiated into wind whilst maintaining full power and just able to maintain height. As some power was still being delivered, the turn was continued whilst still over landable paddocks until a successful return onto runway 24 was achieved. Upon landing, the aircraft was successfully taxied back to the hangar a distance of 600 metres under its own power.
