I think I need some help Guys!

 The big day had arrived - clear blue skies no wind, Off down to the air strip with my cameraman ( woman - Robin) and plane. Did final checks - all OK. Started up OK and taxied out to the end of the strip. Throttle open and we were off. Straight as a die down the paddock - bit of up elevator and we were airbourne - then the trouble started. The starboard wing started dropping. To get it to go in a straight line I had to give it almost full left rudder. I tried to turn right onto the approach to bring it in but it spiralled in in the most spectacular way. Ian
