Yeah—great point...model would help. It’s a flying RV6A. The current servo (step motor) is wingtip mounted. So I wouldn’t be getting creative, rather using the bracket in place vs using the Garmin bracket that is built for the GSA 28 and adding a bracket under the passenger seat.
I would reuse that wingtip location if there is no meaningful advantage to mounting it in the fuselage as is the “norm.” If there is an advantage, I’d do the better way.
