Default Jeti 40 amp controller or other?

I have a AXI 2820/10 electric motor for a Sailplane I'm building. This is my first attempt at electric flight. The recomended controller was the Jeti 40 advanced brushless controller. This controller was good for 3 or 4 servos from what I read. There also is a Opto type that was better for 4 + servos. I'm going to have 4 servo and possible cut in ailerons making the total of 6. I was checking Tower Hobbies to see what info they had on the 40amp Jeti and see they have discontinued it. Can anyone give me some ideas on what make and type of controller I should get and battery size would also be helpful. Does anyone have any opinions on the controller Great Planes have? It's a 45 amp with some safety option built in that require you to give full throttle to activate it. Thanks.....

Do yourself a big favor at look at the Quazar 40A unit from FMA Direct. It has a switch mode BEC that will handle more servos. Fully programmable at $47.95
