It seems to be getting worse as the day goes on
Hmm, too bad...doesnīt sound good. You did calibrate your escs to 125% ATV and set the minthrottle to your particular escīs? I played around the mintrhottle value to see if I could go lower than 1120 with Plush ESC, but it was no good and resulted in motor stops with large negative corrections and subsequent half-flips or crashes. Motors should be spinning at low RPM when copter is armed!

Another thing. You might accidencally zero your P value for one axis, if you dont watch your mouse, when using the GUI. I had this happen (dunno how) and suddenly had no roll stabi....I was scratching my head, until I decided to open the GUI again and look closer at the values!
