Usually helis want to go to the left on take off until you get above the flite wash..So at take off hold right stick a lil to the right.

All Fixed Pitch heli's drift to the left on takeoff until your in the air. Like the OP said you can counter this with right cyclic until your out of the rotor wash or you can adjust this by setting about 3-5 degrees of right tilt in your swash.. I'm not familiar with your heli but if its a CP heli then it should not drift at takeoff unless it is out of trim and if that's the case you need to make sure your swash is level and that all control rods are at the proper lengths and that your blades are balanced and all trims set to center on your transmitter and go from there.
