Default Picking Servos for Alerons

I'm setting up my .40 Cloud Dancer with dual aileron servos.

I have the following servos available.

2 - JR 507
2 - Futaba S3003
1 - Futaba S3004
1 - Futaba S3001
1- Futaba S148

Any recommended combinations?
I don't like the JR 507's as they are a bit slow.

Can I run the S3001 with the S148?
Run the 2 S3003s or swap one of these for a S3004 in the kids trainer and run 2 S3004s?

toss em all in a drawer and buy 2 - Hitech HS-85?

G'day Mate,
I would use the 507's, you won't need fast servos, unless you are gunna fly 3D, they should have more than enough power.

I'd go with the S3004s, or the JRs if they have ball bearings.

the JR 507 servos do not have bearings. I have 4 and there is a 4 servo bearing upgrade kit for $20

the S3001 is dual bearing
the S3004 is single bearing
the S148 has bronze bushings
the S3003 has plastic bushings
