Default arm lead balance drill

I've been working on the drill progression from "Back Stroke for Every Body" . I'm good at the head-lead balance drill (ie. kicking on back with arms at the sides). I'm also good at rotating from side to side from this position. But as soon as I extend an arm, I lose my balance ... my head submerges and it feels like I have to kick hard to keep balanced.

Moreover, the position with arm extended just doesn't feel comfortable to me. The analogue of this position in freestyle is "skating", with feels quite comfortable. Anyone else experienced similar problems?
