Default Mirage 550

My first flight It seems that my little plane like to go left (even when rudder is full right)? The first attempt had the plane take off and roll left....and into the gound (outch!!!).
Any suggestions of what might cause this or anything I can try to correct it.
I am using the turbo 550 motor that came with the kit.

Could be a few things. Maybe there wasn't enough airspeed to counteract the torque of the prop? Also double check that the rudder is going the right way, i.e., when you're standing behind the plane, the rudder moves to whichever side you push the stick to.

Also make sure you're not taking off in a cross wind.
