Default Servo jitter from Remote Glow Starter

I have a Hangar 9 Remote Glow igniter installed with the female plug on the cowling. This unit comes with a male jack and glow igniter adapter. With rx and tx on, when I first start to plug in the male jack for startup, I get this momentary jump in the servos. Not too concerned as all works well, once the jack is fully inserted and of course removed for flight. Has anyone experienced this "problem" or is it normal as the tip of jack is positive and outer ring on female plug is negative. Flipstart

happens on every plane in have... it doesn't matter if the tip is negative/positive, the servos just see a sudden change in potential and glitch away. (holding a screwdriver to the engine probably will do the same, it is the metal-metal contact generating noise)
