Narrative:The aircraft was landed on the helipad with the engines running in order for one of the two passengers on board to disembark and continue the journey to Brisbane Airport. Once the passenger was clear of the helicopter, the pilot applied a small amount of collective pitch control in preparation for takeoff. He then felt the helicopter begin to roll right and applied full left cyclic pitch control and maintained the collective pitch control position. The helicopter continued to roll right and subsequently came to rest inverted between the helipad and the river bank. The pilot and remaining passenger received minor injuries and the helicopter was substantially damaged.
