Default Park flyer servos

Hi all,
Sorta basic question:
I am building 3 GWS planes right now (c-130, pt-17, and C-47). I am just getting back into the hobby, so I don't have any gear for any of them. I know I'll be getting back into gas kits, so I bought the Futabe 7C radio with standard size servos. I figured it would be cheaper to buy the setup for gas kits and then purchase the receivers/servos/etc, for the parkflyers seaparately.
My question is this: what is a good budget micro servo to use in all my gws planes that is compatible with futaba/gws receivers (I assume the GWS receivers will be the cheaper option. I prefer futaba, if only for the reason that futaba is what I used 15 years ago. I am looking for the lightest servo possible with enough torque for the above mentioned planes.
Thanks!
J

Go with the E-Flite servos S75's. These are really nice servos for $13.00. I have used alot of differant ones and up until now I liked the Hitec the best, but not anymore. The E-Flite servos are really fast and alot of torque respectivly.

I third on the e-flite s75 servos. Im the manager at the hobbytown here and we have all the micro servos you can name. After looking at all the packages the e-flights ends up being the best / cheapest servo. The gear set is also much stronger than the ever so popular hitec hs-55
