Default 5945MG servo-some droop some don't

I have several 5945MG servos, 11 to be exact. Out of those 3 will allow the flight control surface that they are attached to to droop. The others hold the surface in their neutral position. This is with no electrical power applied of course. All these servos are new and recently installed in 28% size planes.

The question is should I be concerned or just fly?

Which surfaces are drooping? If it is the ailerons (not mass balanced) or the elevator (again not mass balanced) it just means that you have very good servos and friction free linkage--a good thing.

I ve found the same...even took one of them apart. I cant find anything wrong just seems that the geartrain is tight enough to stop the surface moving. Im not using them as I also found that the non movers are pulling more power at rest ???

The problem as originally noted is typically related to the gear-train and small anomalies in the manufacturing process, which leads to tighter tolerances. I'd wouldn't be concerned and use the servos; you'll likely note that after a short time the servos are as loose as the others you mention.
