Is there such a thing as motor being too powerful/prop being too big?

I installed a Mega 16/15/5 with a Master Airscrew 7x4 (gas) prop on my Wattage F-22, gave it a launch... and round it went, rolling RIGHT INTO the ground 2 meters in front of me! No amount of right aileron could save it
It has a broken stabilator now... I wonder if the torque produced was too much for it to handle?
The motor is turning the prop at about 12,500 RPM.
