- It gets busy where you need to mount the servo under the floorboard. In most RV-8/8A this is prime antenna mount space. Add the larger wire bundles that most people are doing (as in full avionics and such) and this area is not suited for roll servo mounting.
The Dynon autopilot roll servo mounts on the right wing bell crank as an assembly, so easy to install and remove. I don?t know but assume the other major brands of autopilots are similar.
