My calculation does not agree with test #4. Also, it is odd (but unimportant) that the values for theta go from -360 to +360 rather than -180 to +180

Your result for test #4 is clearly wrong. Simply add up the masses with positive elevation and the masses with negative elevation, and you'll see that the CoM must be below the xy plane.
