I forgot if this happens to the left or right, but sounds normal for the MSR and conventional rotor helos. The tail rotor is for counter-acting the torque of the main rotor, but it's also kind of pushing the whole helo the way it's blowing, too. If you see enough pictures of full scale helos hovering in calm wind conditions, you'll see that they usually have a little roll, as they actually have to hold in a little left cyclic (I believe, at least in US helos, depends which way the rotor turns.) to counteract that sideways push from the tail rotor.
I guess it's been known for helo pilots to respond to 'How're things going?' with 'Left skid low.' Meaning all's normal or well, or something like that.
So you have to expect it right at takeoff, then you should be able to trim it out while hovering away from ground effect and other objects.
P.S. Just looked at Blade sight, since my helo doesn't come to bed with me! And the tail rotor pushes to the right, so it will want to move the helo left.
