Torque was not my concern. I was thinking about whether you might be using a lift vector pointed slightly to the side to resist drifting from the wind pushing you sideways on the runway. Something like a slip only while on the ground. It's routine in gliders and I did it often with wheeled helicopters.Straight stick, full back, is good. The Adding a tilting to the side of the crossing wind decreases rpm acceleration,
and not decreases the torque of roll like that of a fixed wing in asymmetrical flight, because this effect does simply not exist on a rotary wing.
