Just checking that tru trak aileron servo doesn't interfear with manual aileron trim. I don't think it does but I just wanted to throw that into the air for somebody to comment on:

The manual aileron trim and TruTrak wing leveler servo are very compatible in the RV-8. The servo fits perfectly just in front of the manual trim mechanism and on the left side of the stick mechanism. This combination has worked perfectly in my RV-8 for more than 500 hours. Both are great systems.

It (roll servo) can also be installed on the right side, and then you simply swap two wires on the connector.

Preparing fuse skins for riviting and kept looking at that area trying to think ahead.
