Stabilize mode elevator control acting strange

Hi- I'm a new (noob) Ardupilot user (just installed the V2 purple kit in a Sky Surfer) and I'm having an issue with the stabilize mode.  I set the plane up on a bench stand (everything level), let the board boot up (I let it sit for a few minutes) and flipped the switch on my tx to stabilize.  The ailerons stayed level but the elevator went up about 15 degrees. What the heck am I doing wrong?  Moving the plane manually on all 3 axis causes the control surfaces to move in the proper direction, but the elevator is still deflected up higher than it should be. The RTL mode works great with nice lazy circles about 200 or so feet above me.
