Of course the travel is limited the by :
A-stops provided with the GSA28 servo.
B-required aileron travel controlled by the stops on the airframe.
It sounds like you have this figured out. For the many RV models that we provide model specific installation kits, our mechanical engineering group has analyzed the range of movement and a customer should use the servo arm hole specified in the model specific installation drawing (unless doing so would create an over-center condition - which it should not).
For aircraft not covered by specific installation drawings, the generic installation guidance specifies "The innermost hole in the servo arm should be used to attach linkage in all cases except where doing so would limit control surface movement or create an over-center condition.
As Brian mentioned, the aircraft control surface stops should always be reached before hitting the stops installed on the servo.
Let us know if you have additional questions.
