    Question Autopilot servos

    I am curious about the mounting location of the autopilot servo motors?
    Where do they attach to the control cables?
    Are they out of sight or somewere in the cabin?

    Bill,

    This photo shows the pitch & roll servos...tucked away nicely under the seat base. Access is obtained by removing the access panel on the belly of the aircrafy-

    Yes, that is a view from underneath. The aluminum tube crossing the picture left to right is the torque tube. The front stick would be on the left end, the rear on the right end in this view.
