Default Which Servo?

Good morning. Have a question I hope you can help me with.

I am assembling a 40 size Ultimate Bipe made by The World Models. Weight is 4.5 lbs and wingspan is 42 inches.
This is not a 3D plane as the control surfaces are quite small. The ailerons are 1" x 18" per wing half. There is one servo in the center of the bottom wing which controls all 4 ailerons.
Anyhow, my question is this.

The manual does not offer any information regarding recommended servo size. The aileron servo cutout is not designed for a standard size servo. I could enlarge the servo cutout but it is not intend. Obviously they had something else in mind. The servo opening is 1-1/4" x 11/16 x 3/4" high. What Hitec servo would you recommend for this application? Thank you.

Hmmm. OK let me ask this please.

How does the Hitec 225MG compare to the Futaba S3002. The specs look similar but at 1/2 the price there must ba a difference. Airborne models recommended the futaba s3002. Would the 225MG work here?

The torque of the two servos is roughly the same, but the 225MG is faster.
