That was a Bell 206 that rolled on takeoff / during hover. It was a BLM firefighting helo. Crashed in 2000 out in eastern Nevada. Killed one, 1 serious and, 1 non-injury.

thats really kinda sad to see the airframe looking like that. also the people who dies or were injured is even more distressing.

My dad use to tell us about something called a "Cyclic Hard Over Right." Does that sound familiar? If you know what it is exactly or there is a more correct term, could you enlighten us.
If I remember correctly it had something to do with a Hydraulic failure?

Wish I could be more help, but I have not heard that term. I even did a search for it without any luck. I will ask a couple of our pilots if they have ever heard of it, or if some of the scale pilots on here read this maybe they could help. Sorry my Cliff Claven knowledge bank went broke!!!

Hard over

Its hard to tell exactly what happened but from the sound of the accident investigation accounts, a cyclic hard-over could have been a possibility. A cyclic hard-over is basically a servo failure where instead of just quitting and allowing the pilot to push through control movements, the servo jams to one extreme or the other. The only way I know of to get out of a hard-over situation is to shut down the hydraulics however most people cannot get to the switch fast enough before things get too far out of control to correct. A hard-over during takeoff is definately an "Oh sh*t" situation.

about 10-15 years ago

When I was in my early to middle teens. I remember watching something like "Real TV" or some "actual footage" type show like that. It showed this Hughes 500 I think flying about 100' up not fast. More like a slow moving hover. All of a sudden the Heli rolled right with a very very minute slight yaw to help the roll. The next thing you see is the hughes lay in a ditch and a big ol hawaiian guy lifting it up about 2-3 feet to get someone un trapped. That is when my dad told me and my little Bro about the "Hard over" and that he thought this is what happened. I wish I could remember exactly what he said about it. He Was a mechanic and worked on Hueys here at the AAF.
