Because the seating position in the 14 is quite a bit different from the 10 (in the 10 you are sitting higher off the floor... in the 14 your legs are extending more out in front of you), and the fact that the 10 has a wider cockpit, the use of a quadrant would directly compete with the design philosophy maximizing fit/comfort for larger people.
I think a quadrant would be fighting for the same space as some occupants inboard knees.
Not saying it can't be done, but before you go to all the effort I suggest you make a mock-up copy of the one in your RV-10 and see how it works as your fwd fuselage comes together (pay particular attention to where your knees have to be to get full stick deflection left and right).
If there was enough interest, it might be looked at. I suggest builders who are interested should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Put "attention engineering / RV-14 throttle quadrant interest" (or something similar) in the subject line, and make your interest known.
