Default Add-on Autopilot

I plan to add Dynon auto pilot, including 2 servos to my already flying RV-7
Is it possible to install the wing servo just by using the inspection panel?
Anybody tried that?

My brother added auto pilot to his flying 9A. He actually mounted the servo in the wing tip. Then installed a pushrod in to the bellcrank.

Default 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

Default Dynon Roll Servo


I did just that- mounted the Dynon roll servo through the existing inspection panel on the bottom of the right wing.
