>Sweet! Gotta love crosswind takeoffs. :-)Cheers, i don't know the actual procedure for a crosswind takeoff, but I use the rudder until airborne then I use the ailerons to keep level, but the only thing wrong in doing that is that as you can see in the last shot, I had only just become airborne, and I am already off track...

You should use the rudder to track the centreline, including on the ground once it has authority.

The ailerons are good to keep level, but along with Norm's response, yes, use enough rudder to "crab" into the wind to hold centerline. :-)
