Narrative:
The aircraft failed to climb after becoming airborne. The aircraft was operating with a tailwind and it was suggested that a gust may have reduced aircraft performance. The pilot immediately noticed the lack of performance and commenced dumping the load that was being carried for an aerial baiting operation. The performance did not increase sufficiently and the aircraft collided with two fences and scrub. Although the aircraft was substantially damaged, the pilot was able to return to the airstrip.
