Default Unequal elevator halves


while I was setting up the throws on my GP Reactor 46 today I found that, with the LE of the two elevator halves inline with the stab's LE, the TE of the two was not level. When looking from behind, one TE is definitely lower than the other. This is not an alignment problem because they halves are otherwise fine. Looks like the two halves are non symmetrical. I had noticed a similar problem with the elevator halves on my Reactor Bipe earlier. I summarize that GP has a elevator half line that is supposed to make one type of half that is to be used for both left & right sides. But they are making the halves nonsymmetrical about the chord line.So when the flip it over, the TE of the two halves don't end up level. Anyone else have the same observation and how to correct this?
