Default GB Sukhoi needs servo advice?

I am purchasing a Goldberg Sukhoi with an OS 108 engine and may upgrade the engine. Currently it has standard servos and I know I will need stronger servos to start learning 3D.My question to all you guys is what are the best choices for all surfaces without going into bankruptcy. I have read digitals are more accurate than analog. Up till now I have used fut3004's on my 40 size planes and have been happy with them. I also have both hitec and futaba RX's and have no problem there either and have have eclipse/spectra radio. Your thoughts?

Easysport,

Before investing in expensive servos for all control surfaces, I recommend going to a 6 volt battery to boost your 3004 bb servos in transit time and torque. I have the GB Sukhoi with Futaba 148's. I am satisfied with the response and effect. Good for learning without the cost. Then as you pocket book allows convert your rudder/elevator & ailerons in that order to high torque or digitals and you won't go wrong. Just my .02s.

Tbolt, you took the words out of my mouth. GO to 6 volt packs and see if you like what you find!
