Default Yaw, trim tab and auto pilot.

Hello, everyone long time lurker new to posting.
I just picked up a nearly finished RV 10 empennage kit from a fellow Vans owner. I am checking over the work and diving into the instructions. So far the work is excellent.

I am trying to plan out what mods I was going to accomplish for the empennage. When it comes to rudder trim, yaw dampener and autopilot I am slightly confused. Can all three be utilized? Is the rudder trim really required with an autopilot? I am thinking of just autopilot servos and yaw servo. Do I need to decide on avionics now before I get the autopilot servo and yaw dampener?

I am convinced I will do with an autopilot and yaw dampener but not sure about the trim tab.
