Narrative:
The Quicksilver MX ultralight (C-IDAN) took off on runway 22 at CCS6 Courtenay (Smit Field) and flew on a runway heading for about two miles before crashing in a logged off area of a mountain. The engine, a Rotax 377, was heard to slow before the aircraft crashed. The pilot was not injured but the aircraft was substantially damaged. The pilot reports that after take-off, the engine coughed. He pulled the throttle back and the engine smoothed out but when he pushed the throttle back in, the engine quit.
