Default HS81 & HS55 Overreacting

H have a Mplx Easy Glider Electric with HS55's in the ailerons and HS81's for the rudder and elev.

When I use down elev and let go the servo returns slightly past neutral and causes a pitch up attitude, just enough to disturb straight and level flight. Same reaction with the rudder. Both only in one direction. Very annoying.

HiTech receiver, Futaba TX.

This can happen, especially with pushrods that run through sleeves. One way to combat this is to maximize the end point adjustments in your radio and put the linkage on the servo closer in and on the control surface mount it further out. This will allow the servo to travel further increasing the resolution which will help minimize centering issue you are having.

Not sure how to do this but I'll investigate.

Do you have a computer radio?
