Default Jr 8411 servos versus Futaba servos

I am about to install servos into a Yak 55 of 102" span made by Composite arf that will be powered with a DA 100.
It seems to be a great stunt machine.
The manufacturer suggests to install JR 8411 servos on ailerons, elevators and rudder.
What do you think would be the best Futaba servo matching this requirements?
(If any)
Thank you very much for your suggestions.

I think you will find that this is the same as asking which is better, Ford or Chevy (wait, you're in Italy.. Umm Ferrari or Maserati )

Futaba's website lists the specifications for it's servos, so you could look at which servo best equals it according to those specs. People seem to stick with a brand so you will get biased answers to your question.

Suffice it to say, both companies make excellent servos and you'd be happy with either.

9151's would work great.

9151's are great, the gearsets are very cheap. You just have to watch hanger rash because of the nylon gears. Futaba has a new servo called the S9351 coming out which is a coreless digital, metal geared, standard size servo with 180 oz of torque and a speed of .15 at 6V. This will be Futaba's best standard sized servo. The best giant scale servo from Futaba is the 9152/9153 servos, they're a bit bigger than standard but have awesome gear trains and great specs. I'd either used the 9151's or 9351's on that plane, 9351's if I could.

If cost is no object, go with JR 8611's. They are the most incredible servos I have ever seen. Torque monsters!

Then what about the Futaba 9451?
The are metal geared and have a speed of 0,1 at 6V.
Futaba does'nt suggest them for airplane use, but I do not understand why.
