Default Dynon Autopilot Servo

Hi All,

While at Airventure this year I bought two Dynon SV32 autopilot servos, just like my RV7 has. Since then I have discovered the recommended roll servo for the RV14 is the SV42. The difference being the SV32 is rated at 36 in-lb of torque, the SV42 at 55 in-lb

Just wondering if anyone has an SV32 roll servo installed and had any inflight operational experience with it, do I need to go and get an SV42?

If you purchased new from Dynon, they have a free trade-in program on their servos. No difference in price either.

I opted to install SV42s in my -7A but I'm sure the 32s would have been fine with such light controls.
