Standard servos should be ok on this. I would be inclined to use JR sport MN 48. Small, light, quick, 48 oz torque and reasonable cost, very good centering. They work very good with my AJ Extra 50" 330L. ENJOY

I tested the first plane on the GWS Naro servos, it was ok but I never did dare to try any hard stuff, just flying about. I am running on HS65s and its great. I think the HS55s are ok but you will run the risk of stripping servo gears and you cannot push the servo too hard. Mild aerobatics should be ok.

Definately go with the hs 65's. Thay are the perfect match for this plane. Also I think if you buy them with the the plane you get a pretty good break on them. I have probably 200 flight on my 4" with these servos and no problems what so ever.

I've just bought one but won't be allowed to get my hands on it until Xmas day [&o] and have bought the HS 65's mainly becasue I've stripped servo gears on other highly aerobatic planes using inadequate servo's before and twice - heavens know's how - have managed to land without too much damage.
Just seems a false economy to save a few quid on some servo's and risk the whole plane along with the time / effort of putting it together when buying one replacement will be more expensive than the extra cost for all 4 in the 1st place.
Hope that helps, can't wait to fly mine but if you get yours out soon let us know what you think !!!!!!

Best to just invest in 4 pieces of the HS65s, keep the 55s for another plane, now you have reason to get another plane!!!
