Within one minute of Flight 302’s departure, the person who reviewed communications said, Captain Getachew reported a “flight control” problem in a calm voice. At that point, radar showed the aircraft’s altitude as being well below what is known as the minimum safe height from the ground during a climb.
We know MCAS is not operational below 1000ft and with flaps extended, so how does the report above square with this being MCAS related? It appears the root issue was evident as a flight control problem more or less from the point the aircraft took off.

Something doesn’t seem to add up here.
