Default Savage XSS questions

Next week I will be placing an order in for this kit - looking forward to making it.

My question is about radio gear and servos.

I have a Futuba 3PK that I used for largescale as you kinda needed digital servos to fun without any servo clitching right. I did not really want to the 3pk with this savage so was thinking about buying a HPi radio gear. advice on this.

what servos do I need. Hitec HS645MG ?? two of these or not?

cheers

Darren

Those servos I mentioned above are anologue, so won't work correctly and will burn out with the 3pk.

So I would have to get the HS5945MG which is Metal geared, high torque and digital. I don't really have the budget for digital servos at the minute, thats why I was thinking of getting the HPi AM transmitter and receiver and get some Anologue servos.
