5888 GT maxed out trim, still not stable

I have a 5888 GT helicopter and I'm having issues trimming it to fly hands off.

I have maxed out the trim allowed on the remote control, yet the copter is still translating backwards and to the left. I need almost half forward right stick to maintain a hover.

Is there anything further I can do to improve the trim to fly mostly hands off?

You need to adjust your swashplate. It should be level. Trim is only used for tiny in-flight adjustments.
