13.9.2 Autopilot Roll Servo Mounting

This entry is part 16 of 67 in the series 13 - Electrical / Instruments

I have decided to mount the autopilot roll servo between the whale tail and the landing gear bulkhead on the pilot side.

I could have made some hardpoints out of 1/4″ aluminum but then the plane of rotation for the servo would not have been the same as the aileron bellcrank. So I used some 1/2″ aluminum for the forward hardpoints.

Once I had tweaked the alignment, I mixed up some structural adhesive with some flox & cabo then bedded the hardpoints.

Once it cures, I’ll cover it with 2x BID and that will be one more thing done.
