Default Futaba high torque servo question

I have a Goldberg Ultimate Bipe that is ready for radio installation. I have two questions you may be able to help with:

1.) What is the right aileron servo (Futaba or Futaba compatible) for a single servo setup driving 4 ailerons? I stupidly didn't put servos in the wings so I'm sure I need a high torque servo. Space is limited so a servo equal to the size of a S148/S3003/S3001 would be best.

2.) Do I need high torque in the rudder (pull-pull) and elevator also?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

What size is that ultimate? I do not think you'd want one servo driving 4 ailerons. You'd be better off cutting a hole and having one per side driving two ailerons.

Is this an ARF or Kit. If an ARF, didn't it come with bays for servos? Sorry, I don't know the plane.

It's the 60 size kit, Mike. I built it to the plans which show a single servo/bellcrank setup. when I was done I found Goldberg's "secret" optional dual servo loose page folded and shoved into the end of directions book #2 (Goldberg's generic radio installation/set up guide). I can't blame them ... I didn't find it when I read through the directions before starting to build. Also, the quality of the kit & directions was first rate.
