Default Which Futaba 9CAPS should I get?

I am going to get a 9CAPS at the end of the month and I am trying to figure out which one to get. One version come with one S3151 standard digital servo, 3 S9252 digital servos and a FP-149DP receiver for $579.99 at TH. My next three kits are going to be a 4*60, SSE and a 1/5 scale J-3 Cub or HogBipe. Are the servos in this radio package too much/overkill for these planes? The other alternative would be just a radio/receiver combo which is $384.99 at TH. I checked the individual prices for the servos; $79.99 ea for the S9252 servos and $34.99 for the S3151. That is an $80 savings with the radio; if I can use the servos. I would like to start using digital servos but I am not sure that these are going to work for what I am flying. A little advice please.

Thanks in advance. Gene

I don't think you can have too good of servos, even in a sport plane. If you've got the extra cash for the digitals, go for it. Just don't forget to get your $30 discount for spending over $300!
