Default hitec 5645mg or futaba 3305mg instructions say futaba 3305 need help

hi guys.
I have just received my first giantscale warbird a topflite fw-190, only problem is I cant decide what servo I should use should I use the standard surface futaba 3305mg that the instructions for the Fw-190 call for or should I use the more expensive digital hitec 5645mg servos is there any reason why I should not follow the instructions and use the futaba or should I go for the more expensive better quality hitecs will these be a better safer servo or are the futabas just as reliable for such a big warbird.

thanks guys....

I have used HiTec servos with great success the same with Futaba. The way I see it if the servo meets the torque requirements it's a personal choice as to brand

I have used a lot of Hitec servos and for the most part have been very happy. That being said I was not very happy with the 5645mg. for my application I found it slow and poor centering. I have been looking at the Savox brand as of late and have been very pleased with what I have used so far.

I am a firm believer and user of Hitec servos. However, i don't believe you would need digital servos in a war bird, just my 2 cents worth.
