I had to adjust the potentionmeter in the transmitter that connects to the gimbal, not sure if this is the same as your problem though. The problem I had was the transmitter would send a differnt neutral positon in high and low rate. I think in your case this would be effecting both the elevator servos though not just one

i had a similar problem and found that my trasmitter wasn't set to 100% on both endpoints what was happening was the reverser would only let the servo it's reversing go to 100% while the straight through servo would go the extra 20% that my trasmitter was set to

all i did was make sure my elevator end point adjustments setting was at 100% or if your using a non computer radio the phillips screw you use to adjust servo travel should be maxed out or turned all the way counter clockwise or whichever way gives full travel of desired servo

the best option would as mentioned be to use two seperate channels and mix them together but if your radio is like mine it won't adjust the slave channel for trim when trimming the elevator therefore in flight trimming of the elevator is not possible and also i have to watch that i don't bump the knob controlling channel 7 or the elevator half on channel seven will move out of center causing very bad things don't ask how i know

just food for thought

on the two leads that come out of the reverser that the servos plug into, switch the servo leads and see if that eliminates the .5 " difference.
I had a ssimilarproblem and that worked for me.
Hope this helps.

And then reverse the elevator channel at the transmitter? good idea.

I am liking the slipped pot on the gimbal too for a possible fault, but they are usually gooped after assembly (all the Futaba ones I've seen have been).
