Default what servo's would you use?

after a long break from flying i'm buliding a new bARF magic extra, quality seems better than it was 5/6 years ago and i just don't have the time to build right now. anyway it's all together now i need servos. i think i have it narrowed down to either futaba 9001's or hitec 5475's on elevator and rudder(possible all around) and maybe hitec hs77's' or futaba 3010's on the alierons standard BB on throttle all at 6 volts. question is what combo would be better? i know very little about digital servos other than what i have read here, i have and still use coreless servos and know they are far better than any standard servo but would the digital be better than the coreless?? the difference in price is not much bout 5 bucks so either fit's my buget for this plane. what i want is something with some power to spare centers well and has good transit speed and costs less than $150 or so all around, i'm not about to put $300 or $400 worth of servos in a $100 dollar beat around plane. BTW i have been flying the last month or so, my trainer and fazer have had about a gallon each through them so this magic extra SHOULD be safe in my hands

Thanks
John

For that size plane the JR 811s would be my choice. (A bit faster than my 5475s)

5475s? I don't think you really need 76 ounces of toque on a Magic Extra... I'd buy a HiTec flight pack. They come with HS425BB servos. 64 ounces I believe. 4 servos, a receiver, a battery, and a switch for around $100.
