Another Carbon-Z Yak elevator servo issue

I was flying my Carbon-Z Yak 54 today and noticed a weird behavior - the plane would randomly balloon up suddenly from level flight - even though I was not changing any control inputs. Happened both down wind and up.

Landed it quickly and when moving the elevator servo - I noticed it would not center at the same spot!

I have dozen or so flights on this plane - all on low rates - haven't done anything extreme - apart from a couple of loops and figure 8's.

Seems like there is a genuine QC issue on these. I am sure HH has a good policy to take care of this - but I could have been in a lot of trouble, had I not been able to control it and land the plane safely.
