Default Dual servo aileron setup

I am getting a GP Reactor 160 which requires two aileron servos per wing due to the long ailerons. I have 3 Hitec 5645s.
Question. If I cannot find this particular servo is it OK to use a similar one with similar torque for one side of the wing?

They should match exactly in specification on each wing. If you can't find a 4th, use the 2 you have and find another pair that is similar for the other wing.

You must always use matched servos.

you can get away with 2-5645s in one wing, and 2-645s in the other but i wouldnt do it... not on a plane that nice.... ive only mixed dual alieron(single servo per halve) on small stuf like ultra sports and tangos
