Default gt-5 elevator servo kicking

Hi guys, setting up my gt5 for the first time. As i'm spooling up my elevator servo is kicking up and down quite violently. This did happen once while i was setting up but when i restarted the gt5 it never happened again so i did't take notice. But now on the maiden spool up it is kicking, not sure why this is, if anyone has any suggestions, would be much appreciated

have a problem with ele. wag , not so violent that i would describe it as kicking, but [see post below] i'm now thinking temp change has something to do with it as it goes away with time outside. i'm using sttings close to the ones on the GT 5 'suggest ' sheet, but i find small changes make little diff.

is your wag flyable? My kicking only occurs during spool up so i'm thinking it may be a vibration issue. but the movement i get is severe and would no way be flyable. Anyone got any ideas?
