Garmin autopilot servo
 
About to install GMC 507 two axis in my 4. The pitch servo looks straight forward and comes with a kit. Not the roll. With limited space under the floor wondering what is the easiest option. Anyone tried this yet? I have foot wells.

This is how I installed my roll servo in the bay behind the foot wells.

Thanks for that. How did you attach to the tube? Work well?

Started with this. It works great, but this part took a LOT of whittling to make it work and reasonably lightweight. A lathe and milling machine would make easy work of this, but alas I donít have either. If I had to do over, I think I would fab something up out of steel.

I haven’t done this yet, but if I do add an autopilot, this is where I’ll put the roll servo.
