Washout question


My Giles 202 has a tendency to turn right slightly with power and without power. I noticed that the right wing has a slight bit more washout than the left. Will this cause the problem? BTW, the ailerons are centered in relation to the wing and the rudder seems straight.

Thanks,
Dave

yes.

your left wing is creating more lift so the ac will roll right.
