Default Jerry's Big Boy ARF servo linkage opinions

I have read all that I can on here and still undecided on the 4 servo wing setup. My question is, can I simply use two y-harnesses for the ailerons (and plug into channel 1&6 for flaperon use) knowing that my servos will be slightly off from one another or do I need to use two futaba sr10 servo reversers to fine tune each pair per wing half. I know that the sr10 would be ideal (and I plan on using one for the two elevator servos allready) but at $35 each I would be buying three. I have used the sr10 before and it worked great, however, I realize that this isn't a precise flying plane and perhaps would be acceptable to use the cheaper way. I will be using 4 futaba 3010's for the wing, two for elev. and undecided on rudder as of now. Please, those who have experienced this planes setup, give me some guidance.

That is exactly what I did. Both servos in each wing are connected by a Y harness and then plugged into 2 seperate channels. Adjust the linkage carefully and it should give good results. The big JBB thread will give you lots of info on the setup of this plane.
