Even with the trim set to full right aileron, it's only marginally better. It's so bad, that I finally caved, and added a bendable aluminum trim tab on the right wingtip to try and help drop it back down. I flew it with that for the first time today, and it kinda sorta helped.

Anyone else have this problem?
Check your tail boom - I had this problem, it turned out I didn't fix the tail boom properly after a crash, it was at a very slight angle and caused a rudder effect and had got so bad I could only turn left. Fixed the tail boom straight and all was well. Perhaps your boom was slightly bent during shipping?
