Mine has the same problem, but to the opposite side. I never found anything obviously wrong. I set it up to glide straight with the power off (left aileron is slightly reflexed, lateral balance adjusted, rudder slightly offset) and tweeked the thrust angles to get it to fly reasonably straight under power. I spend the vast majority of my time gliding so it works for me.
