Just after full power was reached (ready for takeoff), a gust of wind swung the aircraft and the pilot was not able to straighten the aircraft with rudder input. The pilot aborted the takeoff, cutting power and applying heavy braking. The aircraft crossed the dip and rolled through some spaced 20 litre plastic drums before stopping. The propeller struck two drums as it passed through them, resulting in two of the three blades breaking off at the propeller hub.
