Help! Timber problem when switching safe on and off

#1
When I switch between safe on and safe off, the elevator will raise about 3 degrees causing the plane to climb. If i turn safe on, it fly's perfect. I tried to trim it out but not enough trim. Any Idea?

On the bench with safe off and elevator trim at 0, mechanically adjust the elevator so it is level with the stabilizer. This should be easy to eye up, adjustments are made by disconnecting the clevis from the elevator and screwing the clevis in or out on the rod.

It is very rare for a plane control surfaces to be set correctly put of the box, esspecially on planes that require you to assemble at all.
