I'm not 100% sure, actually I'm just taking a guess but it could be the weight of the control system and pushrods ect. weighs more than the elevator, so it pulls the elevator up when the plane is shut down. It is like in a Cessna, when theres no airspeed and the plane is parked the elevator hangs down because it weighs more than the yolk its pullin on. Just my thoughts.Paul Felz
