1- I think it has to do with the 1mm +/- slop that the rds seems to develope.
2- I also think that BIlls hill where we DS is pretty small area with tight circuits, adding extra stress to the ship. To get any speed at Bills, a aggressive line is needed.
So hard to tell. Could not tell wich control surface it was either. Nothing looks out of the norm.

You might see if a light potting of the output shaft to servo splines helps you. If not, then it's either plain old gear slop in the servo, or the wiper to pocket fit.
I've heard of a few people adding a shim to the rds pocket. I equate that to ca in the horn hole, but it's a little harder to accomplish.

Wonder if it's just flexing of the surface. Long ailerons and elevator with light surfaces fluttering toward the tips.

Generically speaking, the surfaces on Baudis airplanes are quite stiff, as is the rest of the wing. Which would lead one to look at control slop and mass distribution as the two "lowest hanging fruit."
