I had a hiccup on one of the elevator servos a few days ago.

About half way through the flight, the right hand servo "centered" itself at about 30 degrees up elevator. It took full down elevator to keep the plane from climbing so I could land.

I took the control horn off and re-centered it. The servo seemed to work okay under a load, no jumps or centering issues. My replacement servos came in today, I'll replace both sides so they are both the same age and manufacturer.

Will do a tear-down on the old servo to see if I can find out what happened to cause it to jump off center.

I have 49 flights on the plane now. I think next week I'll see how it flies without the top wing.
