The MKS servos are perfectionists when it comes to being in the commanded position.
That is a very good trait for a servo to have.
However, if you have any tight spots in the RDS, this could cause the "jumpiness" people are referring to.
If it were me, I would pump some dry lube into the flap pockets where the wiper works.
Especially on a new plane, and especially on the flaps.

Flap RDS really should use a linkage that either telescopes or is allowed to float up and down at the hinge line (IMO), IF the down flap exceeds about 60 degrees.
The bend of the wiper should be further aft when the flap is far down than when the flap is reflexed. That is fact, not opinion.
The Pike is a great plane. It flies GREAT.
I would NOT use a five cell pack with the MKS servos and RDS.
