The pilot was performing a high speed taxi test when the amateur built airplane inadvertently became airborne. The pilot did not understand the operation of the pitch trim system, but was able to maintain pitch control by use of the throttle. The pilot attempted to maneuver the airplane for a landing on runway 27, but was unable to avoid impact with a light stanchion short of the runway and a hard landing on touchdown.
