I'd fly it first and not worry about the servos. It's not a 3D airplane with 45 degree throws. Worst case you'll experience some servo blowback, but 'llI bet you won't see it.

Mine have run with 5%. Ran last summer with 10%. I've also run 15%. I think the high nitro thing is a myth, you can use it but it is not needed. I never used 30%.
