Hold the joystick a little more to the right.

If your plane has aeilerons trim then put some of it to the right.

I have never had a problem with a plane rolling either way though. I put the stick where it flys level. The only thing I noticed is the plane yawing to the right or left. If the plane has rudder trim then I compensate for this.

If your talking about the P-47 in the patch. The roll to the left is pretty bad. the aileron trim doesn't work either. I level it out with right rudder trim.

That must be very inefficient flying though??

Not if the rudder being out of trim is the cause of the rolling../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

try different power settings to see at which speed or power setting or combination of both ( high power/ low speed will give you the worst rolling moment) you are experiencing this problem, and get to know the airplane you are flying, you might need a tad of trim to keep these rolling tendencies on check, remember, for any change in speed or power you might need to re trim for the new pressures.

some Aircraft have fixed trim tabs on Ailerons, some others have differential aerodynamic balancing on them
(ailerons move different travel distance from each other to cancel "adverse yaw") ( this were not used on WW2), some have proper trim ( little movable surfaces that move in the oposite direction of the main surface..in this case the aileron) and there is a fourth type of weight balancing..sort of a spade on a metal bracket that deflect aerodynamic pressure and make both ailerons center automatically due to these pressures,

and last but never least...In real life ( now shut up you troll in red) trim is for conditions that require stability such as take off, cruise, landing, straffing runs or gliding, in combat the recommended setting is neutral.

It could very well be the quality and/or calibration of your joystick. I had a Logitech Wingman 3d and had serious rudder issue after the stick was about a month old. Got me a new MS Sidewinder Precision2 and more problems. I never have to trim nothing now. Even reasigned those keys to perform other functions.
