Do the glide test, with the motor off, but everything else on, several/many times first. Launch it so it will go straight ahead. Look for any strong climb, or bank of the wings, before it glides into the grass. Repeat several times to confirm that it really is the plane, and not just a poor toss. Use your trim levers to make small adjustments until you get it doing a nice level glide.
Then try your take off with power. When in the air, use the trims to fine tune out any further tendencies to climb/dive or roll.
