Default servo torque requirements

I just purchase a cmp p40 warhawk with a 73" wing span that should weigh about 13lbs ready to fly. Anyways the instructions that come with these planes are iffy at best and I'm really not sure what kind of servo torque is required for a plane like this. I've been checking other planes in the engine size and weight category and it seems like the recomended servo torque's are all over the place. Anyways anyone know what the minimums would be for all control surfaces.

If it's a P-40, I'll assume that you're not planning to fly 3-D with it.

Standard servos will be fine
