The pilot stated both he and the passenger and the cargo on the airplane may have placed the airplane over the gross weight limitation of the airplane. After liftoff the airplane would not climb, and crashed into trees off the end of the runway and came to rest between two residences. Subsequent computation of the airplane weight and balance revealed the airplane was 260 pounds over maximum gross weight at the time of the accident.
