Default RE: Balancing

Take the spinner off the propeller, support the plane by the engine shaft and the bottom of the fuselage. If it rolls over, support it by the prop shaft and the top of the fuselage. Whichever way it leans consitently, add weight to the light wing tip.

But before you do that.

Are you sure the plane is trimmed properly when doing a loop? Are you sure you're only inputing elevator and not some aileron?
