Has anyone come up with mounting hardware kits for the GSA28 and Ray Allen servo's in the RV-14 yet. I see them for the 7 and 10 all over, but hadn't seen an RV-14 specific one yet.

You will get the mounting HW with the kit and it is pretty easy setup.

For the rudder, if an electric trim is not a must, you can use a manual one. It is rather easy and inexpensive. RVs require little to no rudder, other than take off or slipping. Once you get it setup for cruise setting, you will find it hardly any need for a trim.

Maybe someone reading this at Oshkosh would go to the Vans tent on our behalf and ask -

1. Are yaw dampers required or beneficial on the RV14 and RV10 ?

2. If so, why and why have you not developed a rudder trim system ?

Please report back asap

Yes Vans has a kit for the roll and pitch servos. The Ray Allen pitch trim is included in the empennage kit. The roll trim is optional and Vans also has a kit for it. It’s same one installed in the RV10. The also have a yaw servo Installation kit with brackets and hardware.

Check out the Avionics update letter on the Vans site for order/part numbers and a bunch of other very valuable info.
