Did you check the cg? It might be offset from center. I don't think these wings should have any kind of torque roll under normal conditions. A high KV motor doesn't necessarily means it's stronger in torque. More often than not it's the inverse. Anyhow, did you try a different prop yet, it might be a simple case of an inefficient setup. Just thinking out loud basically.
