As soon as I read the original post, Gerald's theory of having flaps deployed on launch came to my mind... Because I've done it. When it happened, as soon as the plane left my hand it immediately went into the ground.

Was timing for a guy at the Bruce this past year when the exact same thing happened. He was quite baffled, understandably so, having been down that road before myself I told him likely his flaps were deployed. Sure enough the stick was pulled more than half way.
