Default PAU Extra 300 40%

Anyone flying the PAU Extra 300 40% using only 2 aileron servos a side and 1 elevator servo a side?
I've been told this aircraft needs 3 aileron servos and 2 elevator servos a side because the control surfaces are built up and not solid stock. That they could warp during throw,
My 40% Suhkoi also has built up control surfaces using 2 servos and 1 servo a side. I've never noticed a problem. Trying to keep from having to buy 4 more Futaba S9157 and SWB servo arms.
What do you think?

IIRC and it's been some time, when that airplane was introduced quite a few guys were going with dual aileron servos and single elevator servos. There were a number of wing failures so PAU got a new wing and provided them to all the owners free of charge but instead of 3 aileron servos suggested and 2 elevator servos, they were now required or PAU would not honor any warranty claims.

I could be mistaken that it was this particular model/brand, but I think that it's correct.

Oh, you'll more likely get a response from an owner past or present, over on FG as not many GS guys frequent this website anymore....

I was looking at the manual for this aircraft. Right on the front is the statement that the warranty is void if you don't use 3 and 2 a side. Zeeb you know your airplanes
thanks everyone
