CheckList I would go down:
1. Plane flies straight and level in MANUAL|AUTO1 with no inputs from the Tx. 
(Be sure the plane isn't naturally turning right)
    test: take off and assume level flight. let go of the sticks on the Tx and 
observe the planes behavior. 
    fails: take a note of the amount of up|down right|left required to fly 
level. Land and adjust the linkages to mimic these settings. Re-run test.
2. Max roll maybe should be increased? Allow the plane to roll more to the 
3. Check your command laws to verify a limit doesn't exist restricting the 
aircraft's ability to follow the flight plan you wish. Fly it in the simulator 
and see if you have the same results. 

Just ideas,
