During my last couple of flights, my DFC-90 was in smooth air, in level flight. I noticed on many occasions the plane would drift down slightly, the jerk back up (20-40 feet) get back to the assigned altitude. I did not do it on the next flight, but every flight after that. Has anyone else had this problem?

We had a similar problem with the STEC55X (before installing the DFC-90), the shop found some blockage in the static lines. After they took care of the static system, the problem was fixed.

Sounds like a drop of water in the static lines to me.
