Default Replacing GX Pilot servo with GSA28. Brackets?

I have an RV6 with the TruTrak GX Pilot autopilot. I want to replace this unit with the GSA28 servos, and run the autopilot through my G3X. Dimensional drawings look like the GX Pilot brackets should work with the GSA28 servos. Any experience with this converstion?

Default No problem

I did this on my RV7 about 6 or 7 years ago.
There may have been some slight modifications to the brackets but I recall it being very straightforward. The 6 pitch setup is a little different to the 7 but Iím sure itís no big deal.
Good luck

We provide some generic guidance on using 3rd party servo mounts in section 18.5.2.10 of the G3X Touch Installation Manual. This section begins on page 18-14.

Thanks,

Justin
