Egledriver explained it pretty well, mine are done the same way, the hole should be pre drilled in the wing tip and the missile rail.
The only thing I did different on mine is I glued them to the wing tip with E6000. My idea being that if it were to break off the
damage would be somewhat mitigated as the glue is strong but will give. The missiles are done the same way. I just taped the missiles to the rail,
drilled, hardened the holes with CA and inserted two sheet metal screws.

if you mean play (or slop) no. with radio on elevators should be solid. some servos have gear train slop. use good servos. mine are JR 8931,solid as a rock

I use Savox 30kg are very good servos. The servo arm is metallic and all the mechanism of elevator of skymaster is the stock one. But when servos are centred and on there is a little play load of some mm up and down. Are not completely firm.
this is why I am asking if it's ok or may cause flutter.

I have the same kind of minor play on mine with Spectrum 300 + oz torque. tried other servos including JR 8711's still the same. 15 flights, no problem. One thing is to check the shims on the stabilator shaft. Mine did not contact the bearing on the outside but sat against the fiberglass, so I opened up the hole and used two shims on the outside to get proper stab clearance. This made them tighter.
