Each time I go to launch the Yellow Bee, it veers SHARPLY left and hits the ground. On 2 occasions I have managed to get it in the air, but I have to hold the right turn stick. Needles to say this is not fun. I think it may have something to do with that crappy V rudder shape (why is it this shape?). I say that becasue it has so much play in it... I think it's a poor design. Ideas please?

Oh, it's not like I'm throwing it wrong. It also veers left on takeoff from a paved runway. Gets about 2 feet up and then makes a sharp left and CRASH!

Yes, it is trimmed.

not enough info? I could post pics of my yellow bee, maybe someone could notice a flaw. That wacky angled tail seems strange to me. What is its purpose?

K, I give up. Guess I'll put a silver dollar on the right wing.

It is normal for the heli to veer somewhat to the left, you have to compensate for that with cyclic input.
I'm not sure what you mean by the angled tail. Post a pic if you can.

It's an airplane (looks around to make sure I'm in the right room..yes RC Airplanes), not a copter. Here is a youtube video of it.

Sorry bud, my mistake. I'm afraid I can't help you. I know even less about airplanes than I do about helicopters.

Just my wild guess, you might want to check the v tail. Check also the model balance left and right. How is adding some weight on the right side?
From other video, it shows that the plane either turn to the left or to the right
