I am building an 801 and am installing Dynon auto-pilot servos. Has anybody already done this? Can you offer me any advice, diagrams, pictures, etc...? I have already purchased one with a control arm and another with a capstan. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Check with Mark Townsend, CANZAC. I believe he installed one in the first 750 he built.
There was a recent thread about installing autopilot servos in 601 airplanes, complete with pictures and good explanations. Since the Chris Heinz birds all have very similar control layouts (except in the wings, ailerons verses flaperons) you should look that thread over. Much of that info would be directly relevent to your installation, I should think.
