The Renegade Spirit is a three-axis microlight aircraft with a biplane and tailwheel configuration. During an attempted landing on a 325-metre grass strip the pilot overshot the runway and initiated a go-around. During the go-around the landing gear clipped the top of a hedge causing the aircraft to hit the ground in the field beyond. In his written report the pilot assessed the cause of the accident as “pilot error”.
