I moved the rotor tilt hinge line up toward the hub, moved the battery forward, and centered the battery. Maybe this will tame it down a bit. It wanted to turn left really bad. I was flying right circles because it would turn violently left if I let go of the stick. Still haven't had a chance to fly again, but I'm sure it's gonna be a lot better. I guess the left turn was from coning; following Mickey's explanation. Thanks everyone!

Battery moved forward, and centered. CG now on front of rotor shaft.
Hinge line now at the bottom of the plywood. Expecting better roll authority.
