Well the instructions said nothing about servo size ......... but ............

But if it calls for mini-servos the you would probably need to do some modifications to the servo tray/mounting area in order for it to accept Std servos.

Mini servos ( not to be confused with Micro Servos ) are often just as torque capable as standard servos.

Most replacement mini servos are in the 30oz/in range or up, which is fine for any 40 size plane.

At worst you could replace them with high torque mini servos but I doubt you'll really need to unless you are planning on flying the plane MUCH faster than it was designed for.
