Your photos will not reveal the problem "warps".

The problem warps are transient and variable. They occur during flight, caused by structural loads.

The unwanted effects are speed-related. They might disappear if you could fly slower.

Early aviation [pre 1930] was bedevilled by similar perplexing behaviour.
