Nice place to fly.i wish we had such a place in chennai.
Seems like there is nothing upfront in the nose, should be tail heavy. also the wing is bend downwards like a inverted dihedral.

If CG is correct, then you need a better hand launch.

You looking fully concentrated on the hand-launch (aircraft). Just wonder what the throttle and elevator setting at the time of launch was ?

Use a small silk streamer to see wind direction, then launch directly into the wind with wings levels and 20 degree angle but not with 100% throttle to avoid torque roll.  Try 75% throttkle.  Even better is to a power off hand launch glide test over soft grass to check if the rolling tendency is there.  If it still rolls, trim with ailerons.

I have tried the model, it was way tail heavy. I was also failed to launch it.
few sujjestions

1-  As said above make the wings strait.
2-  Check the Cg.
3-  Adjust the motor mount to slight right and 2-3 degree up ( seen from backward. tail towards you.)
4-  Glide test.
5-  Lauch at 60-65 % throttle,at 45 angle.
6-  As it is your first experience , choose a less windy day.
