Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
A witness reported to the FAA investigator in charge that the pilot departed without warming up the engine, and during the takeoff, the airplane barely cleared trees past the departure end of the runway. There were no known witnesses to the accident but examination of the accident site, which was located approximately 2 miles east-southeast of the departure airport, revealed the airplane descended nearly vertical. Flight control continuity was confirmed. Examination of the engine revealed no evidence of preimpact failure or malfunction. Examination of the propeller revealed minor damage (nick) to one of the propeller blades. An adequate supply of fuel was noted in the airplane's plastic fuel tank, and fuel was noted in the carburetor bowls.

Probable Cause: The failure of the pilot to maintain airspeed resulting in an inadvertent stall, uncontrolled descent, and in-flight collision with terrain. A factor in the accident was the loss of engine power for undetermined reasons.
