Added servo in right wing

Good day,

I added the roll servo in the right wing through the inspection panel.
Wasn?t a hard job at all. In fact one of the easier installations I?ve made.
Just followed the instructions

Sounds as if your starter is incompatible with starter ring. Count the ring and compare that number with the part number and specs of the starter. This is the likely cause.

I had fuel smell in the cockpit both airborne and while on the ground. Traced it to a leaking O ring on the fuel selector panel between my feet. Changed the O ring and smell disappeared.

Clarification, please

I looking to add the -AOA functionality to my -7A. I understand that 30 degrees from horizontal works for the -12. Are you using 60 degrees from horizontal on the -6?

Thanks
