Default FuntanS 40 ARF stripping 3004 servos issue

I have a FuntanaS 40 ARF with Futaba 3004's on the ailerons. I keep hearing about them stripping the gears since the ailerons are so huge. I'd like to either change my servos to 3305's (metal gears) or order a set of metal gears to install on my 3004's. I have only one maiden flight and do NOT want to crash this thing from a servo failure. I have S3010's on the rudder and elevator, HT HS55 on the throttle. BTW, the maiden flight was awesome. No bad characteristics at all but winds were up to 25-30mph so I guess it's hard to tell.
A calm day will show better stall characteristics.
