Did you get the answer you needed? If not, can you provide a link to the specs on the plane?

The MFG usually provides some kind of guidance on servos.

Servo calculators, amongst others, under "Calculators, Conversion, Center of Gravity, Electric Flight , MAC & Servo Torque calculation charts." on my web page:
Performance Slide Rule Calculator - Servo torque, Horsepower, Stall Speed etc.
R/C Aircraft Proving Grounds - CG, MAC, Servo & Basic Model Calculators
RC Calculators - C.Gadd. [Servo Torque, Wing Loading, Glow to Electric etc.]
RC Performance calculators - Thrust, hp, Airspeed, RPM vs Load. etc
Hitec Current Servo Line-up.
Check each servo for the .pdf of full factory specifications and uses for each servo.
FAQ - Programming digital servos.
