Currently have an RV8 with Dynon Servos. Thinking about going to Garmin, anybody swapped and did the mounting brackets have to be modified?

I assume you are upgrading to a complete Garmin system? As the servos will fit the brackets but the operating systems are totally different between the 2 brands.

The roll servo mounts are a bit different, so not a simple swap without a new roll servo kit. Can't speak to the pitch setup on an 8.

This was the case with my 10 and thought all of the roll servo kits were the same. Worth checking into.

Ditto what Larry said. The roll servo mounting is a bit different due to the shape of the servo and will require the Garmin style mount geometry. Easy swap though!
