The vertical position of the CoG doesn't affect lateral stability (roll). Lift is always acting through the same point, regardless of the angle of bank, and therefore has no restorative moment.

Dihedral is what you're after. Not scale, but can be easily added to the aircraft. A degree or two should make the plane noticeably more stable.
