Glad I have my uses. I have just noticed that your reflex lever
is behind your bulkhead. Is that a mod or have I got mine wrong ?
Looks pretty busy under your panel.

Here are the pictures of the Dynon auto
pilot servos as installed. The pitch servo looks much more
crowded than it really is because of the camera angle, which
shows the rudder cable, flexible brake lines, fuel lines,
wiring, and elevator trim mechanism, which are all mounted
below the oversized header. For the servo, I built a
right-angle mount bracket out of 5-BID with a radiused flox
corner, then mounted it to the canard by bonding some studs to
the wing and using nuts and washers to hold the angle bracket
down. I put a couple stiff thick silicone bead strips under
the end of the servo to keep it from flexing and vibrating on
The roll servo is mounted through the
center pillar of the FS 94 bulkhead. The servo is mounted
flush with the forward face of the pillar. I countersunk (and
reinforced with glass) two of the mount screws through the
pillar, and I added two 4-BID “tabs” sticking out to the right
of the pillar to accommodate the other two mount screws. Dynon
sells a pushrod kit that you can custom size for the servos to
keep the travel angle within the specified angle range. I used
the standard SV32 servos on both elevator and roll.
Glad you asked me to take these pictures,
because I just noticed that I did not tighten up the jam nut
on the lower end of the roll servo pushrod!
