Perhaps you can post it on YouTube and we can look as well?

Can you do an arm-lead body dolphin on the surface for an extended duration? If so then you probably have the cardio and flexibility but lack the rhythm. Butterfly is all about rhythm. The window for taking a breath is short, so if you're gasping for air then it could be that you're taking shallow breaths and that is causing your body to panic.

You may want to try taking four to five arm-lead body dolphins on the surface, and then one full Butterfly stroke. Continue doing this and just reduce the arm-lead body dolphins until you progress to full Butterfly. Slow and steady wins the race.
