Summary

The pilot reported that on lift off the helicopter rolled to the left. Right cyclic control was applied but did not appear to have any effect. The helicopter was landed immediately but contacted the ground heavily. The pilot later said that he must have pushed the left pedal during the landing, which spun the helicopter through 90 degrees, causing most of the damage. He also thought the cyclic friction control may not have been fully released before flight.
