Default Mark 4 goes down in port orchard

the pilot and co-pilot are fine, just a bruised ego.
the plane was in route from the shop to the pwt airport.shorty after lift up, the plane lost its lift and crashed to the pavement inverted.
post crash reveled a faulty lip and the edge of the shop floor and the engine hoist stopped rolling and the plane didn't. All fell down in a tangled mess. the plane was at an altitude of about 3 feet reports said.
damage to the upper forward bulk heads and to the left upper strake.
most of the landing was on the roll bar and its fine.
i will insert photos later

I'm glad the pilot and the co-pilot is fine.

I hope the damage was minimal.
