Hello, I am very concerned about which side of the controller the motor with heavier counterweight should be. Shouldn’t it be on the left side of the controller, since the right side should be used for higher frequency vibrations?

Thanks for pointing this out! You are right—the left side have the heavier counterweight. I’ve corrected the relevant step.
