Default What servos should I use

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question, but here goes. I am building a Super Sport Senior (ARF)...the recommended engine is a .91 4 stroke...the plane has a flying weight of 9 lbs with an 81" wingspan. I have no idea what kind or servos to put in this thing.
I have been using Futaba S3010 in most of my airplane kits(Lucky Stik, Kadet Mark 2, SIG Astro Hog)....would the S3010's be ok for this size plane? I have been trying to find some info online but have not been successful. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Oh yeah...I use a Specktrum DX8 V2 radio with AR620 receivers. I'm not even sure if that receiver is good for a plane like this.

I see no reason why those Futaba servos would not work well, especially if you run a 6.6V LiFe RX battery. That is of course you run a correct servo arm setup. If you find yourself reducing throw via your TX for high rates, your servo arm is too long. By using the shortest servo arm possible to get desired throw you gain power, centering and resolution. Something you may already know but worth repeating for others who may not.
