Default High-torque servo

I am moving to my third plan, CA Model Epsilon with a .91 engine, that is an F3A/3D style plane.
I am planning to use Futaba 3001 servos on the 2 ailerons, elevator and throttle, but I think I should install a high-torque servo on the rudder.
I thought about Futaba 9202. What do you think about my choice?
What is the compatible servo of Hitec brand?
Should I install a high-torque servo on the elevator too?

Default RE: High-torque servo

High Torque would be good on the rudder if you plan on doing aerobatics or 3D. I think a 9202 would be fine but something a little stronger woujldnt hurt. I'm just not real familiar with the plane. If it was in your budget you could always go with Futaba's new 3010's on the alierons and elevator. Tower has them for 23.99 a piece and the have 72 ounces of torque. If you want something from Hitec and inexpensive go for a Hitec 645. They are $35 and have over 100 ounces of torque.

Honestly though, your standard servos on the alierons and elevators should be ok granted you use one servo per elevator half. Just don't do any power dives into a snap roll without a bag,
