Enstrom F-28A, G-BRZG
Moments after becoming airborne the pilot experienced difficulty in yaw control. He landed the helicopter heavily a few feet from its takeoff position, but exited the aircraft uninjured. The yaw control system was inspected and several items were subjected to metallurgical examination, however no evidence was found of any pre-existing defects that could have accounted for the yaw control problem.
