Default what size servos?

I am in the process of mounting servos in the wing of a Goldberg Tiger 2. Now my plan is to use Hitec HS-86 MG for each aileron. Would these servos be sufficient for the type of flying this plane is capable of? Would using HS-425BB be any better given the weight difference? Incidentally the plane is Electric powered using a Mega 22-30-3 through gearbox and 16 cells.
Also since the wing is already built I need to route the wires through the wing ribs and into the center of the wing. Any suggestions? The servo will be mounted to the wing rib with 1/16 ply sandwich.
Thanks jollyroger

You don't need anything more than Standard servos for a Tiger.

For threading the wires through the wing, you can just tie a screw or nut onto a piece of dental floss, and let it drop through the wing to the center. If you want to get fancy, get some electric light pull-chain from the hardware store instead of the dental floss and nut.
